CPU type: Xeon 3.6 w/8GB of RAM. The system was running fine. Errors started occuring where all connections were refushed on the server. Some processes were opening up hundreds and thousands of ports at a time.
A few changes were made in services as suggested by cisco to make sure some services were started manually and others automatically.
Server was restarted and it did not recover. Cisco works does not work at all and all events in the event log are unable to be viewed.
Please advise if any known issues.
