NHProf.com downtime, and using windows as a server system

time to read 1 min | 134 words

Yesterday nhprof.com was down, there was a YSOD and when I logged into the server to try to figure out what the problem was, I got this:


The server has been running with no issues for over a year, so it is not an issue with not activating after installation. This is a Windows 2008 Server, and I find it incovievable that a server would go down because of activation. To spread more salt on the wound, it wasn’t a problem that could be fixed remotely, I had to call my host and ask them to fix that (they did in a remarkably short time).
