I have a Windows Server 2008 R2 application server, running on my VMware 4.0 environment, and it is giving me heaps of problems and I can't figure it out. Basically, the server's performance has been deteriorating over the past several months to the point now where has pretty much become unusable, and the applications running on it no longer work.
This server's duties are:
Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager
FLEXform Print Adapter
VMware vCenter Server
FlexLM (AutoCAD 2015 license manager)
It's gotten to the point where the SEP won't update the clients, people can't print, or prints take forever, and users aren't able to sync their ACT! databases. When I'm able to log into the server, the task manager shows the CPU pegged at 100% most of the time and the memory usage stuck at about 80%.
This server has never been speedy, and at the moment I've been waiting 30 minutes to log into it. Last time I checked (last night), I couldn't even get into the Event Viewer due to some error with snap-ins. It took me two hours to get all the services up and running correctly last night after a reboot, which no longer seems to help at all. I'm at a loss at where to even start troubleshooting this right now...
