I have a Windows 2003 server that starts up VERY slow. It is a domain controller, an enterprise CA, and is running SQL 2000. It reboots and all services start just fine, databases startup, users can access files from it over the network, etc. It just takes forever to get to the ctrl; alt; del screen at the console. Remote desktop no longer works. To login locally takes 45 minutes. Component services snap-in is inaccessible. Network Connections inaccessible. I'm not sure what changed on it, but I've tried reinstalling COM+ as per other posts. I can boot in Safe mode, but this is a production SQL box, so my time window is limited. Anyone know anything else that I could check that would clear this matter up? Oh yeah, it is also running Symantec System Center and VP. I suspected that at first, but now I'm not too sure.
