  1. the clients are all Vista with exception to 2 being xp pro. Wouldn't this method auto log people off even if they are still working if they reached the designated logon hours? Say I set it for 4hrs, so after 4hrs of being logged into the computer it will log the person out? I more so need a way to force log off after a period of inactivity rather than activity. Basically my dilemma is... Server runs a program to the clients, every night I have the server set to perform server backup, the server side program is set to reindex it's files and repair any errors it finds. I have it set to do this at midnight each night so everything will be fine the next morning. Problem comes in when 1 person may forget to close the client side program on their computer, if any portion of the client program is open the server side will not reindex or repair until all clients are logged out. So the next day I end up having to do a manual reindex/repair then everything is fine. Ideally if there was a way to force logoffs at specified time every night, great. If there was a way to force logoff after specified time of no activity would be great also.

  3. Ok, running Win Server 08 and I need to know if there is a way to force a client computer to logoff after a set priod of inactivity. Not just the screen saver lockout after a set amount of time but a way to make the computer close all open programs and logoff. If this can be done Domain side or even if I have to set this on each individual client it would be fine also.
  4. the app doesn't use IE at all. Also the same prob happens on the 2 XP stations we have left. Just seems like when app itself is trying to read/write back to the server the slowdown occurs. ex. you open the app on the work station it states it is locating server, creating connection, then connects and opens the app. (This part is quick like it was on the old network) -- if you are used to Office 2007 the app somewhat resembles the ribbon type format of office-- Main app opens, you click the sphere, that opens a drop down menu for the different things you do, for us.... Patient Enrollment, Scheduling, Insurance Verification, etc. Say I click patient enrollment it then takes a good 10-20 seconds to open that corrosponding window. Whereas on Server 03 and XP it was practically instant. Do the same action on the server side, instant. Same thing after you enter all the information and save or close the window..... takes 10-30sec or longer to save and close. 10-30sec may not seem like a huge deal but if you think after doing this for 50-60 patients a day or more thats a good 30mins or more of sitting a waiting x 10 employees. Trying to resolve this myself and with help from the community would be nice since tech support charges $6/minute and basically knows their App and not alot about networking or the server itself and the last time one of our IT guys screwed up cost $4k in tech support. On another note I tried disabling the server 08 and Vista TCP auto tuning, disabling IPv6 etc with little to no change. The downloading other files straight from the server and only getting 1MB/s has me stumped as well. but I'll go back and check the router and server NIC when I get back to the site. thank you for the suggestions and i'll post back if any changes and what they were just in case someone else stumbles across the same prob.
  5. I know the topic isn't to descriptive but here goes... basically the network is Server 2008 - quad core, 4gb ram, dual Seagate cuda's in RAID1 on onboard controller, enough to run server 08 quickly 10 workstations all vista business - e8400's, 2gb ram, sata 3.0 hdd's all latest drivers, bios, etc in case people have questions if things were up to date. Now to the problem, we run a health care program that has the server side program and basically thin client programs that read/write back and forth to the server from the workstations. When we were on SBS 2003 and XP machines, the clients would read/write back and forth to the server almost instantly (which is what youd expect), since the upgrade to "faster" computers and gigabit LAN there is a good 10-20sec lag in accessing different pages within the program. Acessing the program on the server itself is basically isntant, connecting remotely to the server is also very quick. The only other problem is file transfer speeds.... if i drag and drop a file from the server to my workstation I am getting approx. 1-2MB tops. Any ideas?
