Windows 2003 Server Conflict
Posted on 2006-06-16
I have a strange problem...
I have a windows 2003 domain server. A company came out yesterday and installed a database application that runs on a windows 2003 server for five users to run this one piece of software. Ever since they turned on their server my users have complained all their computers are running extrememly slow. I've looked at this server and it isn't running as a domain controller or a dhcp server.
Is there anything besides turning the new server off that I can look at to see why my user's computers would be going so slow when they are running their network apps?
I am willing to try to turn off their server to test but I need a fix for this because this software is depended on by three departments.
Is there a way on my xp pro workstations to see if it's somehow looking at the new server to authenticate and timing out then dropping to the correct server?
