Slow win2k3 file server
Posted on 2010-01-05
We used to have a windows 2003 server that acted as a file server. The file server handles folder redirection for 200+ users. Their dfs root is on the qx100. Term servers pull user profiles from the San via smb. It had a 2gig hba connected to a ax100.
That server was also a domain controller.
So I had another machine with the same hba (qla200) installed win2k3 and attached the ax100 to it.
If a couple people log in, it's fine, but when the day gets going that 200+ people start to log in, it get to the point where
1 can't rdp to server, but can ping and access wmi controls
2 file serving is speratic at best. Some can access their pst file, some can't.
Seems like datas corrupt, but after hours all data seems fine.
Machines running out of resources. Lookng for ideas while I'm on my way to datacenter to look at machine.
