JSI Tip 6640. Windows NT Server 4.0 SP6a hotfix for long standing random hangs.

Your Windows Server NT 4.0, running Service Pack 6a, hangs at random intervals, for no obvious reason!

When this occurs:

- All console activity fails to respond.

- You cannot remotely manage the server.

- Users cannot access shared resources.

- You can ping the server.

Microsoft has finally released a hotfix for this frustrating behavior.

You must call Microsoft Product Support Services to obtain the fix, and mention hotfix 819041. In North America, they will take your credit card, but the engineer will NOT charge it when you tell him/her that you want the fix from Knowledge Base article 819041.
