First post here!
Recently I rebuilt a server that provides DHCP services and print services (PaperCut MF).
Everything was working fine until earlier this week. PaperCut randomly stopped working, and on top of that, I could not remote into the device even though it showed an online status. When actually standing in front of the device it was on, however, browsing or getting out to the internet fails. It does ping in command prompt to sites which is very strange.
A little bit more info on this is that this isn't the first rebuild we have done on the device. It does has brand new equipment/hard drive etc so i highly doubt there is faulty hardware.
When it crashed this time, doing a graceful restart of the device (after Google Cloud printing was failing on the PaperCut side) made it blue screen and was in a constant loop.
As of right now, I have everyone set up for printing outside of the use of PaperCut which is working fine. I will not be able to take the network down for a week or so, that's why I was wondering if anyone had any insight. DHCP services are still doing its job on the device as well which is weird. No issues there. But not being able to browse, but successfully ping? I am afraid if I restart the device now, it will blue screen once again. When calling PaperCut support I asked if maybe a corrupted database would be an issue and he said that since its internal, it shouldn't be causing any issues.
Needless to say I have been stumped. I feel once the device finally can be restarted it will fail once again. Is it possible that PaperCut MF and DHCP do not like to be running on the same device? Or should I be looking elsewhere?
