I have a Windows 2008 R2 Server which is running headless. It's a full installation, without a monitor, keyboard or mouse. For the last few days the machine has suddenly stopped responding at random times. It can still be pinged, however it's inaccessible via remote desktop, and none of the web application running on it responds. The only solution so far is to reboot the machine.
It's running a RAID1 mirror across 2 1.5TB drives, and I suspect one of the drives is failing, or at the very least has a bad sector that is causing the freeze. To confirm, I would like to run
chkdsk on the drive, and was wondering if anyone knows an easy way to do this without having to connect a monitor, keyboard and mouse to the machine?
Alternatively, what else should I be looking at that could be causing this problem?
