I'm not sure this is the place to ask this question, but I'm at wit's end, so here goes:
I manage a small network based around Windows Small Business Server 2003, with about a dozen users logged on to the domain each day. All of these are local, as I haven't yet established a VPN or other way to log in remotely. The server is used mostly for file and print serving, and I haven't even set up an Exchange server as yet.
Every afternoon about 4:30 to 5:00, access to the server becomes painfully slow. Trying to access files across the network is like pulling teeth, and soemetimes just hangs.
Sometimes it effects some users, and sometimes all users. I have looked at the reports, but I can't find a process or event at that time that may be the cause. Does anyone have an idea as to where I should begin to look?
Thanks for any help you can provide.
