On a Win2K SP4 Server that had been up and running a long time, the "Server Service" has disappeared from the system. "NET START SERVER" returns "The service name is invalid." with a reference to HELPMSG 2185, and the Server Service is no long listed when I go directly to services.msc. This was discovered when trying to open any of the Admistrator Tools, such as Routing and Remote Access. The only way I'm aware that you can delete services is with a tool from the resource kit, but the resource kit is not installed on this server. Any ideas on how this could have happened?

Any ideas on how to fix this without taking the server down?

I still haven't been able to figure out how/why the Server Service was removed from the system, but I was able to resolve the issue but adding the "File and Print Sharing" service, which adds the Server Service to the system when it is installed, then once I confirmed the Server Service was operational, removed for F&PS Service for security reasons.
