, I believe I've isolated my issue of server lockups being caused by the Scanner software. The situation I have is a two week old new Server 2012 Essential build, that is migrating from a 35 TB WHS v1 box. During the course of setup I installed both the drive pool software (love it btw) and the scanner software. Every hour to two hours the machine would drop all shares, RDS would become unresponsive, and the box became unreachable over the network by both tracert's and pings. Subsequent removal of the scanner software eliminated the issue that I just described which occurred a half dozen times prior to removal. After migrating the vast majority of the data, I reinstalled the scanner software last night - I was hoping it was being caused by software updates by our MSFT friends, however once again within two hours the machine became unresponsive. Is there any recommendations, debugging that I can do to determine what aspect of the program is causing this behavior? Thanks!
