slow server

By umesh_gk ·
I have a intel motherboard based server.I did fresh installation of windows 2000 server with service pack3.The hard drive is scasi drive with adaptec scasi controller.The memory is 0f 512MB.RAID5 Controller is installed.
The server is working slow even while coppying files from one folder to other folder on save volume.
If I install windows 2000 profetional the M/C works with good speed.
Is there any fine tuning required or what must be wrong in the box.
Thanks in advance.

If you increase the number of buffers that the redirector reserves for network performance, it may increase your network throughput. Each extra execution thread that you configure will take 1k of additional nonpaged pool memory, but only if your applications actually use them.
Open your registry and find the key below. Create new DWORD values, or modify the existing values, called: 'MaxCmds' The range is 0 - 255 and the default is 15
'MaxThreads' Set it to the same value as MaxCmds. You may also want to increase the value of 'MaxCollectionCount'. This value represents the buffer for character-mode named pipes writes. The default is 16 and the range is 0 - 65535.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanWorkstation\Parameters]
Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)

I suspect you have a driver issue. Make sure you have the latest drivers for the motherboard and for the Adaptec controller and these drivers are installed. Make sure that all of the devices are not showing any errors in Device Manager, and that they do not show any conflicts. Another valuable tool is the Event Viewer. Check it for any errors or warnings. The Event Viewer is one of the administrator's most valuable tools for overall system health and it can alert you to problems you did not even suspect you had.
