server 2003 SBS XP client connnections very slow!!
Posted on 2012-03-24
Hi, have a really urgent issue!
I have a 2003 sbs server running fine, DNS, DHCP etc.... wise but the three XP client PC's that connect to the network have very slow connections from the server when trying to run a program via a shortcut which looks at a map drive location.
This server has been running fine for two years, but I went to restart the server last Sunday and it didn't reboot. After a while I got the server back up but since then all connections to XP client PC's are running very slowly. One thing I did try on Sunday was removing the network card and reinstalling it which allowed the server to come back up. Then configured the network card with the server IP address etc... Since then very slow connections.
I have just run MBA and it told me to disable "DisableTaskOffload" within the registry which I've done but no difference...
I would be very grateful for a speed reply as sitting at clients site pulling my hair out!
