  • Trouble with brand new TS Installation

    RESOLVED - SEE BELOW FOR FIX



    Hi

    I have just built a new TSFarm with NLB and ma having major issues with logging on and delays. Firstly, I switch on the server and and it powers up and boots up fine. No errors.

    I log in fine with my account, it logs me in great, no problems. I log out, again swift and no issues. Ten minutes later, I log in again with the same account and it takes literally minutes to process my logon. It first goes slow on loading personal settings, flies through applying personal settings, then everything on the desktop runs really slowly, from login script execution to running desktop apps, almost as if all resources are taken up. I check task manager and memory is low nd CPU utilisation is very small. I log off, and then it takes an age to 'save my settings as well'. As soon as it has done this once, then the profile continously has problems. I must stress that this is a NEW profile and I am the only user at present testing the farm.

    I check event viewer and it reports errors about printer drivers and thats it. I have enabled userenv logging to see if this helps, but to be honest I'm lost with it. They both look really really similar.

    This is the log when I simply boot up the server:

    http://www.savefile.com/files/1999570 - [bootup.log - 275kb]

    This is the log file from a standard login which performs as expected:

    http://www.savefile.com/files/1999571 - [fast logon-off.log - 400kb]

    This is the log file from a slow login which we are having issues with

    http://www.savefile.com/files/1999572 - [slow logon-off.log - 284kb]

    I appreciate this is a really monotonous task, and the log files are almost identical, but I'd be eternally grateful if a more experienced eye could cast a quick glance over this and see if anything stands out as odd????

    Many thanks

      Finally figured out what this was. We were using the Proliant support pack on the server, and we had teamed the NICS for resilience.

      For some reason, it didn't like this. After we dissolved the teamed LAN, MSTS kicked back into life and started behaving again. Misleading problem, ultimately happy it's resolved though and hope this helps others.

        You can try Teaming with fail over function and not load balance. This issue may cuased due the virtual MAC managment.
