Terminal Server running on vmware 1.0.6, getting very very slow network access.
Posted on 2008-10-29
we are running 2 physical servers as domain controllers.
Server 1 : DOmain Controller & File and Print (64 bit)
Server 2 : Domain COntroller and Exchange Server (32 bit)
Server 1 is runing VMware server 1.0.6 with Windows Server 2003 Std installed as a Terminal Server.
This has all been running fine apart from some printing issues which we have now resolved but in the last week the performance of the server has really gone down hill, logging on takes as age and we have started to see usrlogon.cmd sometime after entering logon credentials on the windows task bar for sometime, this then disapears and the screen goes blank for a significant time before showing the desktop, if we try to browse the network of connect to a mapped drive or connect to share through run commmand the session seems to grind to a halt.
I cant explain what is happening as this has been working very well for some time until this last week. Any help will be much appreciated!
vmware network configuration is set to bridge mode. and we can ping with good results from server to server.
We have switched of our TS Group policy to make sure that nothing it that was causing the problems and still the same issue.
