Office 2007 SP1, Windows Server 2003
Ok where did the week go here, is it really Friday already. It has been another busy week for me and I have been battling a network slowness issue for a customer and it is like finding a needle in a haystack here on the problem. I think what I am fighting more than one problem here, I can copy a 1 gig file between the different servers and the speed seems pretty good on the file copy.
One thing I found was that Office 2007 on a 2003 Terminal Server with Office 2007 SP1 on it will have problems with opening just a basic email which I can most definitely attest to opens very slowly. And it might only have 3 words on it what the heck? I did some searching and found that yes others have been having this and what was found was uninstalling SP1 fixed them up. Ok I tested this by installing Office 2007 on a Virtual TS Server and yes it was most definitely quicker than the production server. So OK what else can I find here well I found the page file was limited to 2 Gig for whatever reason. Fixed that and now what can I do to get this tracked down. Like i said many different little things. I guess this will be a work in progress as I wade through this. I hate little issues as some think it is the network and I think it is a combination of both. Awwww!!!!!!!
Til later just Roger
