By maddiuex ·
Age old question I guess. But having a problem when XP Pro is connected to a windows 2000 server and joined. The machine is slow and sometimes stops responding. I have read all the MKB Articles and uninstalled SP1 and set my nics to 10 half in advanced, No antivirus, new nics, blew away computer and user accounts and defragged. but when the machine logs on and to itself, works fine. I have tweaked, troubleshot to no end.I have 4 types of computers on 3 differant networks. differant locations, differant ip schemes. all updates, drivers and .......Help

tough to give any advise because not only could the problem be the XP machine but could be related to the server or the network as well.

Can you give us more details on the network? Like W2K Server with AD? How is the XP Pro machine connected to the server e.g. hub, switch? How many computers are on the network? Did you try rejoining the XP Pro machine to the domain? Are any other machines on the network experiencing the same problem? Have you used the network monitoring tools or any other tools to capture data on the LAN NIC{s} both server and the segment that the XP Pro machine is on to try to trace the bottleneck?

List is endless.

note: if you previously joined the XP Pro to the domain and then took the machine off the domain , changed the machine name, reinstalled the O/S, you might have to rejoin the machine to the server. The SID assigned to the XP Pro machine may no longer be valid. Before all else, try rejoining the machine to the domain using the domain administrators account.

Hi,
This is most likely caused by DNS improperly configured on the workstation. It must point to your internal DNS server and not your ISP's DNS server. Your DNS server should be configured with forwarders to the ISP DNS to find sites on the internet. Check that and hope it helps.

Are you using the "roaming profile" from your domain ? Normally, it's slow when your computer connecting / connected to your domain. Try to diasble the "roaming profile" for your user account at the domain, then log in and see. hope this can solve your problem.

All Windows Xp Pro are slow, on a Windows 2000 SMB Ad. The machines are going through a hub or Switch depending on which Network and Building I am at. Yes all has been disjoined from the domain. The Computer accounts deleted. Some machines formatted and reinstalled. and rejoined to the network, More Ram ETC.
All machine are on the same network segment ,with testing some are DHCP and some are Static. On the same networks I have 2000 and 98 machines that does not have this problem. Just XP Pro's Same configuration same subnet ETC. I used Network Probe and no unusual packet or network bandwith usage.
