Server dropping off the network

I am running into a problem where my server ocassionally drops off the Network. I an not ping in or out of the server however the server is up and running. We are on Service Pack 1. The network is Gigabit. It seems that the only way to get the server back on the network is to do a re-boot.

Do you have any Ideas?

Re: Server dropping off the network

SP1 of what?

Is there any error message in the event logs?

Have you tried just disabling the NIC & re-enabling it?

Is there a second NIC onboard which you can switch to & see if it does it on that as well?

Try resetting TCP/IP with NETSH.

If all else fails, rather than spending hours on it (which presumably is expensive :), get an Intel server-grade Gb NIC (around £70 in the UK), install that & use it instead of the motherboard NICs which I'm guessing is what you're using now.

How to troubleshoot dropped calls

I know nearly nothing about your situation, but I've encountered similar problems before so I'll just tell you what I've generally found to be the culprit in such a scenario.

VoIP (especially the multi-user variant) suffers greatly from network congestion. If your network is operating sub-optimally, this may be the reason you are experiencing call drops. Again, I don't know anything about your network's structure, but some gateways have a QoS setting that you can toggle to prioritize VoIP traffic, so this may be an option to consider as it is a very easy change to make.

You may also want to check your firewall rules, as sometimes a firewall not properly configured for VoIP will drop subsequent datagrams if one related to the initial one hasn't been sent within the (usually quite small) timeout period. Especially on a complex network with sketchy routing, increasing this timeout value may yield the results you are looking for.

There's also the possibility that the problem isn't on your end. The same issues I've described above can occur on any network, so the person on the other end may be initiating the call drop instead.

Dell poweredge internet connection problem

A SCSI device would be a hard drive. Sound like you need to check the network cable, card, and configuration. Start by doing a simple ping.

ipconfig /all is the cmd to see the settings. Then ping the Gateway listed.

Server Randomly Reboots

First, go to Dell's website and update all the firmware and install the latest version of Dell Server Administrator. DSA has logs information not logged by Windows. Next, take it outside and blast the fans with compressed air, make sure all components and cables are properly seated in their slots/sockets, turn it on with the cover off and make sure all the fans are spinning. Many servers will increase the fan speed if they detect the cover is off so this is another possible cause to the problem.
Finally, Dell servers have lifetime support, this number should work: (800) 945-3355
Good luck!
BTW: A temporary workaround might be to use a network controlled outlet that you can remotely turn off and on. Your UPS might be able to turn outlets on and off or you could get a stand alone network controlled outlet. Some can actually ping the device and turn power off and on again if it stops replying to pings. (E.g. IP Power EV-9255 IP

Cannot ping my interl sp5000psl server from the network however i can ping the other server from It.


I would verify your NIC is working. Check the control panel>network for any errors. Also, I would verify the configuration from the DOS prompt. Check with ipconfig /a and see results. if you get an error message about not able to retrieve info, you need to replace the NIC or add one on your board.

Good Luck.

Network Problem (occasionally loss)

Are all clients losing connections or just one? Can anyone ping the server when your client is getting 75% loss? If you are using a hub, what traffic is running during packet loss? You might need a packet trace to see what is going on. You also need to check your server stats when it is happening and when it is not and see what the difference is. Check the hub stats for errors on the ports. Is the server on the same hub with your client? These should help you find the problem if you get this info.

Problem in reboot the server in domain

This sounds like a common DNS issue. You need to make sure that this server has a local DNS server like and not an external one like

Your server is trying to find the domain controller and with the external DNS it cannot. This is why when you remove the cable it loads correctly. it assumes that it is disconnected from the local network and it continues without the domain controller. otherwise it waits for the external dns to time out.

Servers not connecting

What are your servers? WIndows? Linux? etc.

Could be a software configuration problem if you can ping them on the network from your PC.
