Hello everyone, it appears that the switches our call center computers are plugged into are being overwhelmed by a machine on our network and it stops, and a hard reboot is required to get it working again, one of our network managers thinks signs point to a network storm, those switched only have call center computers on them, which are sometimes virus prone because of the users, we have FEP and it works great, so as the SCCM and Forefront Admin, do you guys have any idea what I can do to see if one of my machines is causing a "network storm"?

  • Depending on your switch hardware you might be able to enable logging on the switch itself - That should give a good indication of what is causing the switch to hang.

    Failing that try a packet sniffer such as Wireshark (http://www.wireshark.org/) - let your network guys know that you're running it as that may cause some alerts elsewhere.
    That might give an indication of where the traffic is originating from.

    It could be something as simple as a constant Browser Election - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc959896.aspx
