Perhaps your refresh time is too long

1.

On the Manage menu in the Server Manager console, click Server Manager Properties.

2.

In the Server Manager Properties dialog box, specify a time period, in minutes, for the amount of elapsed time you want between refreshes of the data that is displayed in Server Manager. The default is 10 minutes.

3.

Click OK when you are finished.
