  • exchange "File Distribution" and "Replication Service" services

    I have an /SBS2008 server, end-users are complaining it's so slow they can't even add users in te sbs console.

    while investigating, I've noticed they have the "replication service" and "file distribution" both running as part of Exchang.e
    To me, Repliation Service seems pretty obvious - it's for HA or DAG-based services, right? If I've only got a single server, i shouldn't need this, and could safely make it not automatic.

    I'm fairly sure that the File Distribution Service is necessary though, for OAB etc?

    am I correct ?

    This doesn't directly answer your question but I've seen several SBS2008 server running slow (especially the SBS console) that was due to the 32bit SQL Server instance, which I believe is for the SBS monitoring and reporting component.

    Unfortunately I haven't found a fix for it other than to shut down that instance and not use the monitoring and reporting components, but maybe this will help you narrow down the cause of the slowness.

      i suspect it just needs a reboot, and some patches (like rollup 3, 4 and 5)
