I have several 6.5 sp6 servers that since Feb 2010 are becomming unresponsive (to endusers, console) and no abends or other logs are giving my any hints as to the cause.
During the last few weeks we have been going thru all the log off at least 6 servers and found a lot of them related to WS2_32.NLM and after reading de forums decided to upgrade from SP6 to SP8.

But, 2 weeks ago server with Master Replica 6.5sp6 crashed and during some time got a date of 2040, and although things area almost back to normal, we do have synthetic time being issued on 3 partitions.

I like to ask you:

1. Our warehouse server gets stuck/unresponsive almost daily. Can we upgrade to SP8 while having synthetic time being issued?

2. This warehouse server is running groupwise POA. Does the SP8 upgrade affect Groupwise?

Thanks,
