URGENT Server 2003 Domain vs. Workgroup - MYOB over LAN running extremely slow (will add more points :-))
Posted on 2006-07-05
Sorry this question is for so few points but thats all I have at the moment, I will add more when I get them :-)
Ok, we had MYOB Accounting Plus 15 running on an old crappy Win98 system with the data file stored on a win2003 server, via a workgroup. Since then, I've replaced all the systems with much newer P4 dell workstations running XP Pro and set them all up on a Domain.
All other systems are running fine and fast, although MYOB is now uselessly slow, as far as I can tell (and I'm fairly new to the domain scene) this slow down must be due to some difference between a workgroup and a domain.
I've tried installing/running MYOB on a different computer, running virus scans and adaware/spybot, etc. on the workstation and the server but nothing major shows up. The LAN throughput/HDD usage of the server is next to nothing, and all other system work fine even when accessing huge files (though not MYOB).
I dont understand what could cause this when the datafile is on the same server as before and its running through the same switch and even the same cables. Plus the LAN port on the server AND the 48 port D-Link switch are both gigabit.
Any and all suggestions will be greatly appriciated,
