Hi Rob,

How did this problem started? Have you install anything new? (new software/ hardware)

Hi Raj - thanks for replying. Fortunately I now have the problem resolved - took me just over seven hours and I couldn't believe what it was that caused it, but all is ok now.
On Monday we had a powercut, and our UPS's dried up too. The power came back up ok, and the servers booted ok, but we couldn't do anything with one of our servers... the reason? The verion of the UPS software we had installed on the server - unbelievable... if anyone wants a clue as to what may be causing similare problems, have a look at this link... http://www.microsoft.com/technet/community/newsgroups/dgbrowser/en-us/default.mspx?&guid=&sloc=en-us&dg=microsoft.public.windows.server.sbs&p=1&tid=939b6831-720d-43b0-a9e6-23da63fad5b6&mid=939b6831-720d-43b0-a9e6-23da63fad5b6 - thanks again anyway Raj
