Service not starting - network connectivity slow to be established

Aloha -

I have a 2k3 server that networking is very slow to load. By that I mean that the network status icons (LAN and iSCSI SAN) take a long time to appear in the system tray.. A very important service fails to load because it fails to see the network. However once the network loads, the service can be started manually with no problem.

Any ideas are appreciated.

Mahalo,

How old are the network adapter drivers?
What brand of server is it?
What patch level of Windows 2003 are you using?  Is it 32-bit or 64-bit?
Did anything change prior to this slowness occurring, such as a Windows Update?
Has this ever worked correctly?

It's a VM (ESX 3.5 U4) 32 bit. Patched as of January. The server is maybe 9 months old. We only found out recently that this has been an on-going problem since day one. Other VMs are fine.

What is the absolute network related service I can make this service dependent on?? I tried making it dependent on MSiSCSI as the service not loading is looking for a drive connected via the MS iSCSI initiator, but that did not work out for me.

Reinstalled/upgraded iSCSI initiator. All is good.
