For some reason, we´ve installed a new server an domain on a customer which has around 20 computers on the network, some are Windows 7 machines, and other are Windows XP SP3 machines. All computers are with its updates current. But for some reason Windows XP SP3 workstations are having a very slow performance when regarding to everything that requires de server for, Fileserver, Exchange Server, everything is slow.
Everything used to work relatibily fine with the old 2003 server. The customer needed a hardware upgrade and thats why we´ve installed a new server. All is in IPv4 with status IPs, we read a lot on the internet, but still not a clu on where the problem is.

Thanks for anyone´s help, this is extremly urgent for us.

First thing to check is are your DNS settings correct on the computers with static IPs? The DNS server should be your domain controller, and not the ip of your router/gateway.

DNS configured on every workstation is the Domain Server (10.1.1.10). No other external DNS configured.
The Gateway is the linux Router 10.1.1.1

Updates solves created the problem and more RAM makes everything work faster. Strange because before doing the migration to SBS 2008 all computer where running fine with their currect hardware configuration and Windows 2003 R2.
