I have a client that uses Sage Manufacturing, Line 50 Accounts and Payroll.
Several users access SMan and L50 from data shared on the Windows 2008 Server. Payroll is accessed by one user, data also on server in pretty much the same location.
SMan and L50 work fine for all users but Payroll is so slow it's almost unuseable.
We recently introduced a Meraki managed switch to increase security but can't see how this would affect just Payroll.
So far we've tried:
1/ Running Payroll on server - data local - result some improvement but not great
2/ Moving data from server to local on slow client no improvement
3/ Installing Payroll on another client and accessing data on server just as slow
4/ Repairing payroll data using Sage utilities - no change
I'm in the process of installing Payroll on a device outside of the business environment (i.e. my own laptop) and will test there.
Any suggestions welcome please.
