Synchronising messages… why?Locked
I’m in charge of a school network which has several suites of Win2k machines. Fairly recently, some of the machines started coming up with annoying Synchronising messages, which don’t seem to go away for rather a long time.
Now while these messages are up, the programs menu and user area (home drive) are not available, which is clearly very annoying.
Thinking it was a network problem, I upgraded the main backbone to a gig and threw more switches at the individual labs, however despite each lab having about 4x the bandwidth they had before, the synchronisation messages do not seem to have improved at all.
The main server is a 4 x 2 gig Xeon job with a gig of RAM and its processor usage doesn’t seem to be peaking at all, and the 5 disk RAID seems quite happily turning out data without a struggle.
