Dell optiplex gx-260 slow performace

We move our file server from Novell to Windows 2003 server R2.  Dell Optiplex gx-260 runing Windows 2000 professional showed inmediate performance problems.  Something in the new environment seems not fit. Any ideas where to look? drivers?.  Workstations has W2000 pro Sp4 with all patches applied.

    Hi LRL Computer,



    Thanks for the comments.  Problem shows only on optiplex Gx-260 running W2000 pro SP4.  DNS settings are correct an server doesn't show relenvant information regarding this. The workstations get frozen.  Another weird thing is that problems is arinsing gradually, that is to say there are some Gx-260's working and some not working but haven't been able to find a pattern to tackle the problem on the bad ones.



     



    Thanks, Sebastian

    Hi,



    Thanks again for your email.  It is not a dumb question at all but yes we did remove Novell Client.  The safe mode suggestion is good but unfortunately we can't try running application this way because it needs a lot of stuff not available in safe  mode.



     



    Ours is a Domain Server.



     



    KR,



    Sebastian

If this is happening on all workstations you should look at your network settings and verify that your DNS settings are correct.  Also look in the error logs on the server to see if it is fillingup with system or application errors.

    I know this is a dumb question but did you remove the novell client from the workstations?  Also, did you try running one bad workstation in safe mode with networking to see if a running program is creating an issue?



     



    Domain or file server?
