check it out this registry setting for Terminal server

1. Load the Windows Registry editor - regedit.

2. Add a new DWORD key named DisableTaskOffload with a value of 1 to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters

3. Restart server.

Can you provide more information about the specs on the new server and your internal network so we know how clients connect to the terminal server?

What operating system are your end users using? Windows XP SP3 for instance?

Why not try upgrading your client's remote desktop client? That's worth a shot.
You can find the new client for XP SP3 & Vista here:

Windows 7 clients should be ok.

Yes, I understand RDP is how you connect to a terminal server - that's not what I was asking you. I want to know if workstations are connecting over a WAN, VPN, etc....or if they're just connecting locally in your LAN over a switch. I don't know what your infrastructure looks like.

What is slow, user login or the entire session in general? What are users running?
Did you check resource monitor when users said it was slow so you could confirm that CPU, MEMORY, DISK I/O, Network Traffic was at an acceptable level?

Is this Windows 2008 32 or 64 bit? Is it 2008 R2?
