Slow network need a Load Balance , Failover
Posted on 2008-11-05
I have 3 Servers:
Server 1: is a DC , DNS, VPN, Exchange,DHCP,File Server, Print Server (HP Proliant 370 6 years old)
Server 2: Has SQL 2005 (HP Proliant 370 3 years Old)
Server 3: Is a Terminal server for 4 persons ( DELL SC440 6 months old)
my network wires are Cat 6 and I have a mix of CIsco Switch and Dell Switch , nothing major changed in my network but the speed keep decreasing,
Here is my issue, everybody complains about everything being slow; especially in the morning ( I don't
know why). I am trying to figure out to see where is the problem coming from but I have no idea how to start I have open the performance under 2003 and seriuosly I have no clue what I am supopse to look at.
Basically I need some help on:
1) guide me on figure out where is my problem with the sloweness of my network
2) help me on seting up another server that I currently have (DEll 2950) to create a sort of Load Balancing for my Server 1.
the 2 main application that we are using is Dynamics where the database reside on SQL server, and an access Database that is on the Server1.
Thanks for your help,
I currently have about 90 users and 15 VPN users,
