Server continuously falls offline RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I boot my WHS, it will run perfectly fine - for about a day.  Remote access works, backup works ... I can't find anything wrong.  Then for no reason that I'm smart enough to figure out, it just goes offline.  My other computers at home don't see it anymore, remote access doesn't work etc.  My router (D-Link) is configured properly with the port forwarding set up as described elsewhere on the forums.

    Honestly it seems like something wrong with the NIC but I can't figure out what.  If I reboot the server, all is well again for about a day.   I've used this same hardware setup before and never had this problem.

    Sometimes, after the problem occurs, I see some error about "the application failed to initialize."  Additionally, the event viewer shows a long list of SVR and Mrxsmb errors that read:

    Srv: "the system was unable to allocate from the system nonpaged pool because the pool was empty"

    Mrxsmb: "the redirector failed to determine the connection type."

    I was going to try re-installing the server ... any other ideas?
