Hi Guys

We have installed Exchange 2016 and the server performance is very slow. Once we reboot the server it is alright for few days and then starts slowing down and finally come to a point where login take a long time , unable to open anything . Also when you move the Exchange database for the server the performance seem to improve.

Any ideas what could be the cause ?

What resources are available to the server (physical/virtual, CPU, memory, disk space, disk type, # of Exchange servers, etc.)?

Also, what does your user landscape look like (# of users, Outlook vs OWA users, # of messages sent/received a day, etc.)?

mahiummadi,

Any update on your issue?  Is it resolved?  Are you still experiencing the issue?
Todd , Sorry could not respond on time. I am under the pump to fix this issue. I have log a call with Microsoft and they have pointed to the server bios settings. They say there is a known issue with the Dell power edge server. Where you have to set the bios power settings to max performance for exchange 2016 to work. It sounds a bit strange but I have just done that and need to monitor the server for few days and see if that is the issue.
