    one other thing you might look into is time services. DC's with unequal time will create weird issues like this.

    Well, funny you should say that there was a Win32time (?) entry in my event log. Servers are both showing the same time so was going to investigate that further...

    What did the log say? Just out of curiosity do you have a time server onsite which updates from bgfl and then update the rest of the network?

    @Little-Miss - Is your school running Cisco switches installed by Link2ICT?

    Have you had any PC moves / staff in with laptops who could of possibly looped a network cable back into another socket. This would cause similar issues.

    It's not the first time I've seen problems with some of the Ciscos. If it happens again I suggest you give the helpline a call as they're able to remotely see if there are any problems.

    Here's a new symptom...

    I've just imaged 3 machines....whilst doing it the internet stopped working. This happened yesterday but i shrugged it off as an issues at Birminghams end.

    Suppose i better get on the phone to them....

    If it came back after the image finished, it's just the crazy heavy traffic saturating your infrastructure.

    I can understand that.....but i dont think it used to do it before my new DC went in. I still might give them a ring cus after chatting to EduTech we decided that they might be damaged from losing power suddenly.

    Could be that your new DC can read from disk much faster, so it wasn't enough to saturate links before now but is now. But yes, I'd give them a ring and make sure.
