Windows 2016 server freezes after idle for awhile

Q: Windows 2016 server freezes after idle for awhile

Just bought new Spectre x360 convertible computer with Windows 2016. Left computer idle for a few minutes (15) and returned to screen saver. Clicked on the enter button to get to password screen and entered password. After entering it, the wheel of death started and kept spinning. When I tried to turn the computer off, I may have accidentally hit stand by mode. Then the screen started flashing. I quickly unplugged everything. It did come back on and I didn't lose anything. What should I do so that this doesn't happen again?

Preferred Solution: Windows 2016 server freezes after idle for awhile

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Running XP on a computer that has been fickle for awhile. Had a lot of problems loading XP back on the system after a meltdown. Still missing a lot of the on board drivers although I went to dell and downloaded and installed them. This is my work computer, so I need it to be stable. Could someone help please?
 

A:XP locking up after idle for awhile.

seems like a hardware problem to me. i would say either youve fried part of the system idle functions of XP and need a new drive, OR your ram has faulted. run a memory test to be sure it isnt your ram (memtest86.org if i remember correctly) but i do doubt this is a software related issue. for a while i had similar problems on an old rig. games fried the drive.

Problems experienced1) While surfing on the web, my browser will occasionally redirect me to an unspecified site (mostly of the survey or "you've won..." varieties). When using search engines (i.e. Google), such problems occur even more frequently.2) When running my browser, over time, my computer slows down significantly.

Hi,
My objective is to run the tool and analyze the security and software patches on server or computer and produce a list of recommended install.
I read that MBSA (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/security/threat-protection/mbsa-removal-and-guidance) only supports up to Windows Server 2012R2.
Is there any tools that support Windows Server 2016 ?

Dear IT Pros,
I have 2 questions that need your help and professional advice.
1) Does Microsoft has a tool to check whether a patch (KB) was superseded by another KB? In my case, I'm trying to search whether this KB4022715 and KB4025339 (both of this KB was released in 2017) was superceded
by another KB. This is because a security consultant has advised us to install both of this KB to prevent vulnerabilities but since it was released back in 2017, I suspect there must be a newer KB that supercedes it
2) Can advice what KB I need to download regarding this 2 bulletin ID CVE-2017-5715 and CVE-2019-11135? Can't seem to find it after much googling

I needed to install .NET 3.5 on Server 2016 but have hit all of the roadblocks and need help. Here is what I have tried so far...

I tried to add the feature via the server manager but it ended with code 0x80070002. I did have to provide a path to the sources\sxs folder for the cab file which I expected but that didn't help.I tried using the DISM powershell command to add the feature, both using the source location and also using /All so that it downloads the files from Windows Update. The end result was the same as #1 attempt - 0x80070002.I made sure all updates for the OS have been applied and that updates for 'other Microsoft products' was checked. this made no change in the error.I checked the installed packages via powershell and it shows 3.5 as removed, which again is expected for Server 2016 as they intentionally left it out but provided the cab file in the install media.I have executed a clean sfc /scannow with no errorsI have run a clean dism package commandI have tried installing under a fresh admin user profileI have researched for around 3 hours on the forums so I look forward to the various input
I have uploaded both the DISM and CBS logs. I started fresh with both logs so they contain only details related to a single attempt t install via the server manager.

First of all thanks for the help on this. This is a great forum and I am new to it. I did a clean install of windows 7 home premium. It took me several times to install it. The computer kept hanging or freezing. I had to to a hard reset everytime. Finally I got through the install. Now when I start my computer after awhile anywhere from 5min to 15mins even if the computer is idle the system will freeze. No mouse moverment or anything. If I restart the computer and enter into safe mode with networking I do not have any problems. I am thinking it is a driver issue. I have no unistalled drivers in the device manager. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hi Lance9790 and welcome to sevenforums.
After you installed W7, did you install all drivers for motherboard? IE: Chipset driver, sound, video, ethernet, etc. from MFR website? If not, that could possibly be the issue, even if device manager says they are installed.
Let me know if this helps, or if I can be of assistance in helping with updates/installs.

I am currently having an issue were Windows 7 computers can not connect to Server 2016 (domain). Right away I get a "The logon attempt failed".
I know that user information is correct, because I can connect using any Windows 10 computer. I have tried this from multiple Windows 7 computers, they all give the same error. I don't have any problems at all with Windows 10.

So, this seems to be isolated to Windows 7.
Has anyone seen this or know how to get around this issue?

Hi, we are becoming more and more frustrated with the forced windows updates. These may help home users but professional products like servers are not for everyday users and sometimes require alot of configuration to get legacy applications to work.
Windows will at times force updates no matter what we choose in respect to disable them. It is NOT up to Microsoft to determine if or when the servers I am responsible for need to be patched. Any reading and research we have done here has only yielded the
ability to prolong the updates. Once installed over 50% of the servers give an endless spinning circle and require restore or rebuild, this has become unacceptable and has forced us to start testing our applications with different Linux flavors.

Is there a way to STOP the updates indefinitely?

It happens when no specific apps are running except utorrent. I tried to leave it overnight without utorrent running and it still crashed.

I also already disabled any sleep option.

Historically I've used the following syntax with NetMon to determine which switch/switchport each of my server interfaces are connected to: 

nmcap.exe /network "<interfacename>" /DisableLocalOnly /capture SNAP.EtherType == 0x2000 /StopWhen /TimeAfter 2 min /file "<filename>.cap"

With MMA, I can just do a filter for LLDP, and get the same information, at least on my Windows 10 laptop that is.  When I run a capture either locally on a Windows 2016 server, or remotely against
a Windows 2016 server there are no LLDP packets captured.

I am trying to add Windows 10 clients to Windows Server essentials 2016. It seem that in order for the server to see the clients I must the clients join the server server Domain. (Currently they are in a workgroup).

It looks like one has to change the Windows10 clients to access the WSE-2016 DNS. So in windows 10 I go to networks, bring up the adaptor setting. Bring up "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IvP4) and instead of "Obtain the DNS address automatically" change it to always get the DNS address on the WSE-2016 (found with ipconfig).
Then within Windows I use ?System?, ?about?, and Join the server DOMAIN. It now works. The client can now see the Server domain.
I can then see the Server files and the server can see the Windows 10 shared files.
There are still problems however.
When I reboot the Windows 10 client. I have a brand new user screen with only some of my original desktop icons showing. Do I have to essentially rebuild up everything on my desktop again!
Question: Is there not a way to have my original desktop appear when I am joined to the Domain.
Second, since there will be times when the server is off I used the router static DNS IP address as the alternative address in the above dialog box of the Windows10 clients. Seems to work since the client can access the internet even with the WSE 2016 off.
Here is my second question. I have a few home laptops as well. If I force the DNS to the server what happens when I travel. ... Read more

Hi guys I have an issue here that I'm 'hoping' some of you might be able to point me in the right direction in getting it sorted.
 
Basically about 1 month ago a good friend of mine purchased a brand new acer desktop comptuer, I haven't got the exact model to hand as he lives 200 kilometers from me and he's not tech savvy at all, however, from what I remember of it, it's windows 8 x64, 4gb ram and i3 processor, so not bad at all.
 
When he got it I set it up for him as in just put in the regional setting etc.. and ran through the initial set up and all went well. I installed all his programs and all was good.
 
So about a month on he rang me and said his computer is just freezing randomly always when it's left idle for 10 minutes or so and this happens all day every day.
 
He said he didn't install any software or hardware.
 
I'm stumped to what it is at this stage that could be causing it.
 
This is what I asked him to do over the phone.
 
..... Ran hitman pro which said all was clean.
.....Ran chkdsk /f which was fine
.....Went into power options and set both screen and sleep to never
....Ran sfc /scannow which said it found some corrupt file but could not fix all (ran this from command prompt from inside windows as admin)
 
 
I've guided him through all this over the phone but I will see him during the week so just wondering if you have any suggestions on what could be a quick fix for this ?
 
This is only a new pc, so if I... Read more

Something happened Aug.28 causing my PC to freeze often requiring a power cycle. For some reason I only had 1 restore point Aug. 31. My event log has over 7,000 events.
So far I have tried:
chkdisk - all OK
sfc scan - all OK
ran HP's PC doctor - HD looks OK, video is OK and up to date
What is left maybe memory and reg.?

BTW I can boot to SAFE+Network and no freezing.
My BSoD - stop:0x00000009f

A:windows 7 freezes while setting idle - one BSoD

I am trying to install Windows Server 2016 Datacenter (new installation) on a RAID 0 (Striped Drive). The RAID system (Hardware RAID; Gigabyte z390 D) is configured on two SSDs (1 TB each).

Windows installer detects the RAID-Drive (of about 2 TB) and can create partitions on the drive and format them normally. The installation, however, is not possible on this drive (windows can not be installed on this drive).
I tried to download the preinstall-RAID-drivers and add them to the installer using USB-stick but it does not solve the problem. 
I am not sure whether I missed something at this point or even if this is possible to be acheived anyway. 
I appreciate your help.
Best regards

I have just succeeded in hooking my Windows 10 client to Windows Server Essentials 2016. To do this I had to switch the W10 from a Workgroup to Domain setup.
All works fine except most of the desktop items originally on the client icons disappeared. Worse when I launce things like Outlook, Word etc. I have to initialize it from scratch.
How does one get all the settings, desktop icons etc. to re-appear on this new account that is now chanced from a Workgroup to a Domain setting.
I am an administrator (and only user) on both the W10 and WSE-2016. I see under users my original name on the W10/Workgroup and a new name. The new name does not have many files in it. I assume that?s the problem. But when I copy stuff from the old name folder across the programs are still not initialized correctly.

Hi,
I am aware that the latest MBSA version available is 2.3 which is not supported for Windows 10 and Windows server 2016. What is the best alternative for MBSA which can be used on Windows 10 and Windows server 2016 to identify the missing security patches.

Hi All

There's something I've been thinking about recently that I would like to ask the forum for your opinions.

I run a lab at home with about 30 Windows Server 2016 servers. They all have Windows Defender installed and I have a Group Policy which enables/configures certain features like Cloud Based Protection. I never ever browse the internet from any of these servers (I use my desktop with my SUA account for internet activity) and I don't share my servers with anyone else.

What I was wondering is:

To free up memory on my cluster and to reduce disk IO I was thinking of uninstalling Windows Defender on Windows Server 2016 using Powershell as follows:

Remove-WindowsFeature Windows-Defender, Windows-Defender-GUI

Now obviously this would mean I would have no AV/malware on these test servers but since I don't browse the internet from any of these machines the risk should be minimal (note I said minimal as I do accept having no AV has its risks/downside which I accept).

I may keep Defender installed on some servers that have ports open from the internet like my mail gateway (anti spam etc) but besides this I can't think of any other reason to keep Defender installed. All servers are behind a pfsense firewall in different VLANs and have tight firewall rules controlling traffic between them.

I don't have any kind of third party AV/anti malware installed. Everything I download gets checked on my desktop before copying to any of my test servers.

Hello,

I have noticed today that after a few minutes of idle time my laptop completely freezes, no ctrl+alt+delete and I have to manually power it down.

I have even seen this when i reboot my computer and don't enter my password at the login screen for a few minutes.

The hard drive LED keeps glowing.

The only change I did was run windows update. The Perfmon file and the BSOD Diagnostic tool report are both attached with this mail.

Would appreciate any help am at my wit's end. Unfortunately System Restore was disabled too so I can't even rollback.

Unfortunately your zip doesn't contain the necessary dump files but it does contain everything else, s please do the following below in quote.






Quote:
We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.
To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.


Thanks Seth
