Active Directory is slow to respond

By gdagostino ·
I was wondering if anyone can help me with a problem with AD in a windows 2000 network that I've been experiencing lately. The problem is that when I'm in Active Directory Users and Computer or Site Services the OU's respond very slowly. Right clicking on them and hitting properties takes more than a minute to respond at times. Any suggestions are welcomed.

Is the Global Catalog located in your physical location?

If the GC is located at another facility across a slow WAN link, you could easily experience this issue.

what processes do you have running. A slow console might mean you have a lot of background processes taking up processor time. If the whole server is slow to respond, check your memory allocation and if you have enough memory. Though Microsoft recommends 256 MB as a minimum recommendation 1GB or more is practical.
