Brief overview: SBS 2003 Crashed, replaced both HD's and it's back up and
running. Reconfigured everything, to what I thought was correct, but
apparently there is something wrong...
I have a Server 2003 Standard Edition on my network, when the SBS crashed I
had to re-establish everyone and everything back onto the network... The
Server 2003 has our company software, Sage Software MAS 200 to be precise...
I've noticed recently, that when I first logon to the software, everything
is fine, I'm pulling around 3000 blocks of information at a time; but then 5
to 10 minutes later, it drops drastically to 300 blocks...
Broadband usage is not that high to have such a drastic effect; Sometimes I
have to restart the server to see an increase in performance, but again, 5 to
10 minutes later, its back down to 300 blocks... I thought it might of been
client related, but I had almost pinpointed it to one client, but quickly got
ruled out when the client wasn't on the network anymore, and the speeds
remained the same...
One thing I'm worried about, and it's probably the cause of this... When I
re-connected the server to the network; I right-clicked on "My Computer" on
Server 2003; and went to Computer Name; and Changed the Network ID of the
server to a "Workgroup" instead of a domain; then, restarted the server, and
did it again, only adding it to a domain instead of a workgroup. Then
restared the server, and it was available on the network, and the software
was also available to clients to log in.
Which is more than likely wrong, and I'm going to get grief about it, but oh
well, that's what I did. It worked... and the reports that are slow, I hardly
ever use, so I didn't notice a speed change until someone told me about it...
And that's about it... Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as
always... Harsh criticism, not so much, but presumably, it's coming...
