Network drive server does not respond - client computer stops as well
Posted on 2004-11-12
We have one server which has all of our network drives on it. We also installed an Iomega Rev drive on this server, to make backups. It turns out that the Iomega software completely overtakes the system, making the system not responding anymore. I know I could move the Rev drive to another system, and in the end I will probably do so. The problem is that we mapped some of those network drives on client computers. Those computers stop responding as well. They come to a complete halt, or it takes up to 20 minutes before something happens.
I was wondering whether there are other alternatives than to move the drive to another server?
