In the middle of last week I started receiving complaints from users that they have been experiencing slow downs and disconnects from the network. Some of the symptoms are sometimes is take a long time to open a file or print from the server, Outlook will disconnect from Exchange and reconnect 10 - 20 seconds later, Iseries Access loses it's connection to the AS400... I believe I am having a problem with my switches (all 3COM 4500) however I cannot pinpoint where the problem is. I have been running a continuous ping to a few clients that have reported problems and they do not appear to be losing connection.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
