Exchange 2010 Management console very slow

I have new Exchange 2010 installed on Hyper-V.
It has enough memory and CPU power (i5). It is not running DC.
Dcdiag shows no errors.
I have only one DC and DNS on my site.

You say that it has an i5 CPU?
Can you please post the other characteristics of that server as well?

are you running SP1 ?

the Exchange 2010 MMC is slow specially in the first to load, this was considerably improved with SP1 but it is still slow

having 2GB for the Exchange Server is too low and even below Microsoft recommendations!

2 GB of RAM of exchange is too low, the minimum is 4 recommended 8.

all this being said you are NOT running SP1 of exchange and this is a known issue before SP1, download and install SP1 it will improve it

Is this a Hub/CAS/Mailbox server?? Running all the roles on one VM is not recomended either.

@Auric1983 if the server is properly sized there is no issue having them all on the same vm

Did put SP1 on Exchange and SP1 on Windows 2008 R2. All better now, but still a bit slow.

Soffec,

I would definitely add some memory to that sever. You'll see that it'll run a lot smoother from than on.

Yep SP1 will fix it partially however the slowness will not totally go no matter what, the issue is that Exchange 2010 uses remote shell so, when opening mmc, it needs time to connect and bring in all allowed cmdlets etc...

All this being said, add some RAM for your server
