I'm working with a Windows Small Business Server 2003. I have very little server experience here and this one has some pretty specific issues with it I'm unsure how to address. The only source of information I have is exchanging emails with the owners kid who worked with it two or three years ago. His helpfulness is debatable, but he's also very busy and it takes 4-7 days to get a response to emails.
First off, this server has not been rebooted in months, maybe almost a year for what I can tell.. The guy said "The server is hilariously easy to break. The initial setup that was supposed to be run when the server was first installed was never done (as far as I can tell), so it will never complete."
The server is running Cyrious SMS, a piece of business software. I recently did a client install on another computer in this office, which will require me to restart this server - I'm pretty terrified to do anything big with this because if I break this I seriously have no idea what to do. Because of this I've been working very carefully and slowly with my decision making.
If I restart this thing, is everything going to go under? If not, how often should I restart it. I feel like I'm walking in a minefield whenever I touch this thing aha.
