I have a Proliant DL380 Xeon 3200 (single CPU) 2GB RAM. Win2k SP4 which is used a domain controller (with all 5 FSMO roles assigned to it). The AD has about 160 users in it. About 10 people are currently using this machine to print, and the only other software installed is Backupexec 9.1 and Virus Scan Enterprise 7.1.0.
I intend to use this as the main file and print server. At the moment is workload is very low for a server of this calibre.
However the print spooler keeps crashing. And the CPU usage sits between 50% and 100% and I can't find what's using it.
However, when I look in task manager I see the following:
System idle 50%
Winlogon 30% CPU.
I've done a full scan with stinger and the machine is clean.
System idle shouldn't show up on the performance tab of task manager, am I right? So the 50% is a just the CPU sat around waiting for work and shouldn't be registered as "proper work".
