I have had 2 SBS Sever 2008 Machines running in the same environment for
nearly a year now with no issues, one machine is the Domain Controller with
the FSMO roles and the other is used simply as a File Server.
Over the past two nights the File Server Machine has shut down, in the
machines event log the following Events are listed.
