Active Directory

By 2confussed ·
The person who was here before me installed windows 2000 pro on two servers. One is the domain controller and one is a backup. We have one other server that is for email and internet. All of them are not windows 2000 pro. But from what I am reading I don't think ours are set up correctly. I have constant bandwith issues on my server and even though they run very few applications, the server is so slow. I would really like for someone to explain to me what I should be seeing or tell me where to look to see what a windows 2000 server pro with active directory should look like.

Thanks

This is from Technet, not sure what you have already researched.

Active Directory

Want to make sure we aren't talking apples and oranges here.

Windows 2000 Pro is not a server operating system. There is no operating system called "Windows 2000 server pro." Please ensure that you are in fact running Windows 2000 Server or Windows 2000 Advanced Server on your servers.

Having said that, bandwidth issues can be cause by many different issues, many of which are not related to Active Directory. The "server is so slow" can also be caused by many different issues and isn't very desriptive from a roubleshooting standpoint.

What specific problems are you experiencing? slow logons? slow access to shared resources? slow browsing?

When you look at Event Viewer, are you seeing errors being generated in any of the following logs: Application, Directroy Service, DNS Server, Security, System?

When you look at the Task manager on the performance tab, what are your normal CPU usage and MEM usage percentages? If your CPU usage is ALWAYS high, what processes are using the majority of the CPU on the Processes tab?

It could be as simple as your servers being underpowered (CPU or memory), but there is really no way to tell strictly from your description. Please give us some more information.

You were right I am running windows 2000 server. I do not show any entries in the event viewer that sugjest any issues. How ever there have never been any events in the security tab. I'm sure I will have to take a look and set that up. Yesterday my CPU started running at 100% still nothing in the logs. The other person that works here installed a HP 1300 using Jet Direct. I found an issue on that but you are not suppose to have a problem with that if you have service pac 3 installed. We dohowever I am reinstalling it to see if this will fix that. Should'nt I be able to pull up Active Directory on one of our other servers? Thanks for your help as you can see I have several questions.
