Here is a basic layout of my system:
Server 2003 on IBM X235, SCSI Raid 5, dual Xeon 1.8, 2 GB Ram, DC, 5 master roles, dns, dhcp, file server.
Clients are XP Pro and W2K, all up to date on service packs. Office XP and 2003.
About one week ago, saving large excel spreadsheets started to lag. One of the files in question is over 29 MB. I know thats a large file and will probably take some time, but nobody wants to wait for it to save, after about 15 mins, have to hard kill excel cause its locked up. This same file used to be saved in no time at all. Also Word is doing the same thing. I have read several similar posts, but they all have to do with a different setup, novell, W2K server, NT, etc. Have not seen anything with Server 2003. This is causing serious problems. Even to save it locally, then copy it to server takes a tremendous amount of time. Loading files, browsing network, printing, internet services are all still very fast.
Thanks for any advice in this matter.
