Network issues and Exchange

Hello

We're running Exchange 2007 SP2 on Windows 2008, along with Outlook 2007 SP2 clients. Exchange servers are all based in UK.

One of our offices is based in Germany and sometimes the WAN link is not great.

This means that when they access Outlook it can be slow due to latency between the servers (UK) and client.

When they call up saying there are 'Exchange issues' is there a tool we can run to show that network latency is causing the problem? I've heard of RPCPing, but not sure how this would work in the environment.

Any help appreciated!

Fastest way is to have the client in Germany ping your Exchange server and see what the response time is.

You will be looking at the time=Xms.  The higher the number, the worse it is.

I was thinking of something:

- From the Exchange server side
- That was more Exchange related?

In my exp, latency is going to be between your server and the users.  You would need to trace from the source to the destination.
