I have a Windows 2003 server that I am trying to use both as an Rsync server and client. It's basically an intermediary server for nodes on my network to backup to and then acts as a client to push all of the files off to a remote location.
Everything seems to be installed and working fine but when using the client (which was installed before server) to backup local files, the job starts without a problem but within a few minutes the server becomes non-responsive (no ping, etc.). I only have remote desktop access to the server and it doesn't have a monitor on it, but when the problem occurs it completely dies from a connectivity perspective and I have to perform a hard restart to bring it up again.
I'm trying to replicate the scenario on a local machine running Windows XP Pro (only difference is that the server was installed first) but cannot seem to duplicate the error. Short of hanging a monitor off of the machine, which is difficult, does anyone have any suggestions?
