LAN Inactivity Issues

Posted on 2011-05-03

Hello there,

I have a customer with a rather strange issue. He is the Manager of a local steam-cleaning company.

The third party program they use takes about twenty or thirty seconds to actually run after a period of inactivity. I removed the Sleep on LAN feature for each of the Network Cards and it didn't seem to make a difference... The other information I have is that this issue started about two months ago when the C drive on the Server (running Windows Server 2003) got close to being full. The third party company moved it to the D drive and then back to the C drive after they had a couple of issues with that.

Any ideas?

    Take a look at the swap drive. is it big enough or is it on a slower drive?
    Do you have too many temp files on your C drive?
    Does everything else work OK on that machine?
