Hi, We have an MS Server 2003 Standard , was installed 12 moths ago, new good specs intel base hardware. It is the Domain control with active directory , 20 users with XP Pro, file & print share, latest win updates, not serving any apps.
It sometimes take VERY long time (10 - 40 minutes) to log in as administrator onto it. It authenticates, shows you the standard MS blue desktop screen (no icons) & just sits there...
When you restart it (by pressing the naughty little button at the front) Admin can log in within 2 -3 minutes, as you would normally expect.
We used to backup w Retrospect 6 server (inheritance from old server) & it seemed to lock up when login in as backup user to swap backup HDD's (since few months reverted to only admin login) & starting a second instance of retrospect. Last month we remove Retro & changed over to Acronis server 11 (AUR), issue is still existing - especially when login using RDP
Any ideas out there? Many thanks for our help.
