I am having an issue with a Dell server that is running MS Server 2003. About 1 to 2 hours after a reboot the server service stops and I am no longer able to access the shared drives across the network. There an no indicators in the event viewer that would show why this is crashing. The problem is the client computers that use XP are constantly writing files to the server all day long. I have done a lot of searching online and have not found a decent answer yet. As of now it has been up for about 2 hours and I am making sure all of the updates are installed. If anyone has any suggestions on what I could try, please let me know. I have scanned for virus/malware and have found nothing.

What are they writing to the server? What kind of server is this?

It seems that downloading windows updates has solved the problem. Not sure what was fixed but it is not losing shares anymore. It was a Small business server (dell poweredge). The clients are writing xml, dat, and other similar files.

Keeping your server and workstations updated is critical to optimum performance of any network.
