Have you run Performance Monitor to check page file and memory use?


Do you have the Page file set to static at 3* memory?


First place I would look is at running HD utilities and check for Disk
Thrashing caused by a process doing a log of paging.

The servers' hardware is brand new, it's only 5 months old. The fan is still
going well. We're thingking about the safest scenario on replacing this
server using exactly the same name and configuration to prevent our 300+
users to reconfigure their outlook connection setting (server repointing).
Or is there anyway to build another new server with a new name without
having this, while the old one is restored.

I personally would make sure there is a valid backup.  How old is the server
/ hard disk drive?  The power supply?  Is the fan still going on the power
supply and / or server chassis?


sometimes those are warnings of worse things to come.
