I am facing an odd problem after a reboot of my Win2003 server. Once a week, the server reboots for maintenance reasons. Sometimes, it loses power because it's a mining company down the forest so the power can be an issue. Once this happens, the server reboots by itself but the BE services won't. Especially Job Engine and the Device & Media services. I can start them manually just fine. Sometimes, I have to enter the password again in the logon as service fields.
In the eventvwr, i can't see two errors after a reboot. Both ID 33808 saying this:
Une erreur s'est produite lors du traitement d'une commande B2D.
Changer: SetUpProperties() GetDiskFreeSpace failed (G:\VERITAS\B2D\). Error=3
The other one says:
Changer: MoveMedium() Attempt to Lock Slot Failed (G:\VERITAS\B2D\Folder.lck). Error=3
I'm not sure if it's related to B2D directly because he is probably not able to see it because of the Device & Media service not started. When all services run fine, my backups are taken either on tape or NAS.
I have seen on another thread that it might resolve by putting the service on Automatic (Delayed) but unfortunatly, i'm not on SBS or 2008 so, no option available for that. I'm wondering if I could do a little script that would restart the services after a complete reboot but i'm not a pro in this department.
If anybody can shed some light on this, i would be grateful.
Thank you. Bruno
