Partially Very Slow Network Access
Posted on 2011-09-27
I have a network speed problem I cannot figure out.
I have a Windows network with Dell W7 clients and Dell W2K3 and W2K8 servers connected with Avaya GB switches. Most are working at speed. Problem is any machine I logon to seems to run VERY slow when connecting to a specific W2K3 server. This particular server runs a SQL MRP clinet/server db and is also a print server. Literally no one else is experiencing this problem. When I copy files to/from that server and my desktop, initiated from my machine, I am seeing 100 - 500 Kb throughput. When I copy files from that server to/from my machine, when initiated from the server, I see Gb throughput. When I copy files from my machine to/from any other workstation or server, initiated from my machine, I see Gb throughput.
When I try to run the MRP client, from my machine, the logon screen takes upwards of 8 minutes to load but is up in 8 or less seconds on all other workstations. When I access the MRP client from a Terminal Server the client loads in 8 or less seconds too.
This machine also server as a Distribution Point for AD software installs and workstation imaging. When I start an image it now takes 8+ hours and completes with failures and missing packages. This process used to take less than 30 minutes.
Everything used to work! Who did I piss off?
I have tried moving my switch side port to different ports and different switches in the stack with the same problem continuing.
