Portal folder not communication with the server

  Asked By: Eugene    Date: Aug 27    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 677

Our SharePoint site is not showing any content. The dashboard is
gone along with any other web parts. I tried to open the Portal folder
in the client tools and it would not open. Error message basically said
the folder could not communicate with the server.
All documents are still accessible but not the web parts. We
are running SPS1.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this problem?

You probably only have one option: restart sharepoint  or, more likely than
not, reboot.

Check virus software - do you have it running? Unless it's
Sharepoint-aware, you can corrupt sharepoint and make it unstable.

We ran into your problem  about weekly and reboots were the only fix. Four
days ago I totally uninstalled SPS, reinstalled, reinstalled SP1, restored
and it hasn't had any lockups yet, but it's way to soon to say we're problem
free for the long term.

Our IS dept was able to fix  the problem. Turns out the C: drive
was full due to an abnormal TSM log. Once space was recovered and
rebooted everything was okay.
