We have had a client of ours move over to server 2008. The transition went smoothly(this is a domain controller) and we had no issues. However, it seems that after about a week the operating system hangs.
The mouse and keyboard stop responding and a remote connection into the system is not allowed. The only way to correct the issue is to hard reboot the system.
I have not seen any events logged in the event viewer that provides any relevant information.
Our antivirus is vipre enterprise but other than that we have pretty much standard installs other then our monitoring software which allows us to track the servers status at all times. The thing is, the server shows online and responds to pings but nothing else can connect.
