Terminal Server Sessions hang sporadically
Posted on 2007-10-10
Hi All, Hope someone can point me in the right direction on this.
I have a Windows 2k3 Server which is used to run about 20 terminal services sessions. The server is also running SQL 2005 server.
At intermittant points throughout the day the terminal services sessions will all hang for anything between 3-20+ seconds, afterwhich they carry on as though nothing had happened.
The server is an IBM x3500 with a Dual Core 1.6ghz processor and 3GB of RAM.
The drives consist of a 3 disc RAID 5 setup with 2 partitions, one for system data and the other for user data etc.
The server is not a domain controller as that and the exchange server run on a separate box.
The page file is set to 9GB (was split over the 2 partitions, now on just one with no difference)
Users typically run MS Office applications, acrobat and a custom database application.
Has anyone come across this type of problem before and if so, what can be done to fix it?
Many thanks in advance for any ideas. If any other information is required, please ask.
