Too many times. That is why we are seriously looking at either going back to INNd or outsourcing it.

We are testing a full feed to INS, and its really starting to
annoy me. Eveytime that machine has either crashed or rebooted,
I must run a re-build of the hash tables before the news server will
start. The real complaint, is that with a two gig (its expiring at
48 hours) spool, it takes 8 hours to rebuild the hash. Now THATS
annoying! We have DNEWs running for almost a year, and although its
sometimes slow, it atleasy doesn't die and/or can recover instantly.
The MS purchase requirements for INS makes it unattractive to.

I;d be interested if anyone else sees the rebuild issues on a
dirty shutdown.
