DL585 reboot times

We have DL585 servers using Windows 2003 & SQL 2000. When rebooting the servers may take over an hour to reboot. Any patches available?

Re: DL585 reboot times

Hi,

We are running Windows Server Enterprise 2003 SP1 & SQL Server Enterprise SP4.

I have searched the KB.

Re: DL585 reboot times

Have you noticed which particular stage of a boot process takes so long?

Maybe a dumb question, but how much memory have you got in these boxes? Is a power-on memory test disabled in the BIOS?

Re: DL585 reboot times

Hi,

I would suggest stop the SQL services then shutdown the box then check the time.

Refer to this artical some issues with windows 2003 with different aplication.
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;555025
But this is for EXCHANGE.

I would suggest try same method for SQL then check.

Re: DL585 reboot times

Thanks for the input guys.
I think we may have found the problem. It is with the latest SmartStart 7.2 & 7.3 installations. Here is the link
