I am running Exchange 2003 SP2 for about 120 users. Exchange seems to be rather slow and groggy when accessed from Outlook, and after running the Exchange Troubleshotting Analyzer tool, it says I have high RPC issues and a deisk bottleneck (logs are on going to the same drive as Exchange Installation, but not as the database files, which I *thought* was the preferred configuration).
Please help me get this server optimized......Here's what I'm running and where everything is:
Dell Poweredge 2800
(Disk 0 - RAID 1 connected to internal PERC SCSI card)
C:\ partition is 12GB and houses the OS and Exchange installation
D:\ partition is 60GB and houses the Exchange System Logs and the program files for Anti-Spam and Anti-Virus Apps.
(Disk 1 - RAID 5 connected to external PowerVault 2215, 4 disks installed with room for 6 more)
F:\ partition is 250GB and houses the Exchange database files
L:\ partition was just created, and I was going to move the log files to this partition.
