server 2 is currently agrivating me. it 'runs' fine. apart from the GUI - ish
when navigating to my comp/docs/explorer it takes 5 mins and trying to do anything else in that time is pointless.
looking in task man 700mb ram in use and cpu is just chilling.
if i click my comp, a file on desktop then double click the time (to load calender) 5 mins later they will all appear in that order.
printing is being done on this server and thats about it.
it seems to have problems talking to server 1 and (popups about cant see the shares from that server) but other servers can so not a sharing issue with s1) - sysadmins workarea on s1 is disconnected at present
When I got problems like this (strange server performance issues etc) I used to set up a server on a VM, make it a DC transfer roles etc from the ailign server. Once sure allwas done correctly, wipe the old one and reinstall from scratch. It's a day job, but if it needs to be done then it needs to be done.
Oh, and have you checked for disk errors? Always a good thing to look for when unexplained performace issues crop up.
