Hello wondering if anyone has any ideas.
We are running windows SBS 2008 SP2 (Only needing it to function as a file server, and DHCP)
It is extremely slow so slow that loading circles don't spin. Clicking on things even preforming Ctrl alt del to log in
takes a while. Hardware wise the server is fine. The slowness only appears to be affecting the server its self (People accessing
the shared files/Printing don't experience any issues)
You open the SBS management console and it just sits there collecting DATA and saying Querying and that's all it will do, it never finishes.
We have repaired the SQL 2005 and applied fixes, set maximum memory to 100MB and recreated the SBS monitoring data base, but still extremely slow.
My main concern is that it will not load the backup and restore page, it just sits there Querying and never Query's.
Even if we can just get it self backing up, and deal to the slowness later.
any suggestion would be great cheers
Thanks for posting in the forum.
Based on the information you provided in the original post, it’s hard to narrow down the cause of the issue. Would you please let me know how much memory your system is using? Please understand that as a database server consuming as much RAM as possible, you should add more physical memory. In addition, the slow performance issue could also be anything from a bad disk controller to a bad network card to any number of other things in between, such as 3rd party apps on the server. Also, we should check if BIOS, Firmware and drivers are all up-to-date. In addition, we should also check if there is any virus on the server. Here are some useful link as reference, hope it helps.
