NT Scheduled Reboots - Enterprise/Deployment Servers

Hi all,

We had a CNC consultant onsite who said that as we are running OneWorld on
NT Servers, we should schedule nightly reboots of both the Enterprise &
Deployment Servers. He said that OneWorld on NT has a lot of memory leaks &
creates a lot of temporary files that can cause problems.

Has anyone else heard of this & do you schedule reboots? If so, how often
do you reboot? Our Network/Infrastructure folks don't recommend scheduling
reboots as they say that it is risky to do this.
Rock - Hard place!!!! - = ME .... Help?

We are: B73.3.2, NT, SQL 7.0, SP10

Thanks,

Kimberley,

I have a Win NT Enterprise server, NT application server and NT deployment
server. I haven't heard of this suggestion and I don't reboot any of these
boxes unless it is absolutely necessary.

Our TSE reboots everyday @ 5:45 and no issue has come up. However, I find
that not all tmp gets cleaned and every so often, I have to delete them
manually. no big deal since it's maybe every month or so.

Kim, I have never heard about rebooting Enterprise or Deployment servers
daily. We don't.

I have, however, heard that about Windows Terminal Servers. Lot's of
discussion on the list here in the past. We do not reboot our Citrix WTS
every night and have had very few problems. I reboot the WTS every couple
of weeks with no problems.

Kimberly,

Terminal Servers should be rebooted nightly.
Enterprise, Deployment, Logic, Database, etc. servers seem to change from
site to site. One reply said he never reboots his. I've found that I need to
reboot my deployment server once a week. If not, then memory becomes a
problem. Since I take that one down once a week, I go ahead and do the
Enterprise server as well, simply as a precaution. I don't want to get hit
with memory shortages in the middle of my production week.

My suggestion is to just keep an eye on the available memory for a few
weeks. If you don't have any problems, then don't worry about rebooting. If
you do have out-of-memory issues, then reboot on a schedule that makes sense
for your site (ie. once per month, or per week).

I thought the reboot issue was useful for WTS under NT4... but not necessary
for a fat-client set up. However, we have been having performance
problems...
