We have a Terminal Server running on Server 2003 R2 x64 Standard Edition. Applications are installing very slowly on this server. The current registry size is: 470MB. The hard drive is defragmented and updated firmware including latest drivers from Dell Server Update DVD.
Total Users: 15
Total Applications: 7 (other than Microsoft built-in apps)
HDD Size: 73GB SAS 10K RPM
Hardware: Dell PowerEdge 1950 III
I downloaded PageDefrag tool from TechNet website (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897426.aspx
) and ran the tool. The registry is reduced from 470MB to 460MB. Still the applications installation is very slow. In some forums, uses suggested me to uninstall all the HP printer drivers and reinstall them with new drivers. We have 13 HP printers installed on this server. We have another identical Terminal Server which is running fine. The server hangs frequently and huge number of print warning messages in the event log.
I verified the network settings and everything is correct. But we are also receiving the RPC server is not available message and it automatically disappeared after few minutes.
Any further help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
