Utilization at 50-60%, server slows downLocked
My Netware 6 server will abend at the end of the day as users are shutting down their PC’s. I know this may sound strange, but I have tracked this
problem over the last 2 weeks and it is consistent. I installed SP3 today
hoping that would be a cure, and it seemed to be until the very last user shut down their PC and the utilization spiked to 55% from 1% in a matter
of seconds. I have consulted the Novell knowledgebase and I have applied
any late breaking patches that may address this situation.
The server is a Dell Poweredge 2600 with RAID 5 and dual processors. I am using Arcserve 7 for backup which is working perfect. I have consulted
Dell and they suggested that I install some Flash BIOS upgrades for this model server. I installed those today prior to the service pack. I am
using a combo of pserver and NDPS printing, all of my jet direct printers are serviced by NDPS. I have 1 NSS volume sized at 12GB with compression
enabled. I don’t know what further info I can supply, but I am extremely frustrated and suggestions would be wonderful!!
