So since last week, we've had a lot of issues occurring on our file server. Whenever people are working on the file server, it just comes to a standstill. People's work when saving takes absolutely forever. Copying/pasting of files across from the file server across our gigabit network is taking absolutely forever. I've attached a snapshot of what happens when we try to copy/paste. It freezes like that says it is 'calculating'.
Even if I log onto the file server, it can take some moments to load content on its drives and then it will go back to normal. There are no particular services running which would cause this. We restarted the server and at first all seems fine, but a little while after it takes ages again to copy files or save files to it.
The fileserver is on the IP 192.168.11.35. There are other servers on that network too, so on 192.168.11.5, if I UNC to it and access files and copy to my PC, it literally happens in split seconds, making me wonder that it is only associated to this server and not switch/network related?
I've checked the RAID array configuration utility and I've put a snapshot of some errors there.
We have a file server on a Windows 2003. We have attached at the back SAS cards that connect this to our SAN.
Any ideas guys would be fab.
