I have Dell poweredge 700 with Dell CERC SATA 1.5/6ch Raid controller card in RAID 5 I have about 20-30 stations connected to it at any moment. The disk queue is small below 1 from time to time people will experience desconnection problems such as i will try to access file and server will stop responding for about a minute and then will serve the request. Any ideas on what could be going on or where I should start troubleshooting. P.S. This server is domain controller and print server. No significant errors are recorded to Event viewer only printer related errors.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

During such a failure, can you still ping the server and what is the CPU usage,free system pages, available work items/server items, etc., etc. If you can’t ping it than it’s a network, nic, or cpu issue, relatively easy to fix. If it’s not CPU then you’ll have to look at the other items and see if/where it’s running out of resources. I assume this is happening on more than one computer. Also when you ping it, ping it by name and by ip, are you using wins and/or dns, sometimes the name resolution server can be experiencing delays and it makes everything else delay. Just some thoughts…
