Okay, so here is the deal, i have the following set-up.

Server A is my domain controller
Server B is my terminal Service host

Currently i have about 25 Users who basically run a very simple 32 bit program for sales called myriad which is soul-ly written and operates in FOX. Also users use Outlook in the same session. The average size of each outlook PST is about 4GB. Below are the exact specs of the Dell Power Edge T110 Server that hosts the terminal service sessions. I cant seem to understand what the problem is, I have ample amounts of hardware available but it seems that i have errors with speed, even though the CPU usage stays at low all the time and same for network usage. The user tend to have a problem when it comes down to speed and efficiency of the server which basically has a consistent LAG at all times. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You'

Please clarify the following:

1) are hosts connecting via local or internet (wan/site to site vpn/etc.)
2) what is the type of terminal services client that you are using? Win to Term server/Thin Client/etc.
3) are you using VDI?
4) have you configured QOS policies to aide in throughput issues?
5) how many users are simultaneously connecting?
6) is this happening all of the time/only certian users/(more detailed information as opposed to it being slow, is it an application's that is running slow, or is it the session itself?

1.) All the host connect local via a gigabit network.
2.) All users connect via MSTSC on regular machines running windows XP
3.) No this setup does not include VDI
4.) I have configured QOS on the firewall for remote users
5.) anywhere from 20 to 25 users during the day
6.) It is slow during our business hours when everyone is logged in.

I have made two registry tweaks as well to the system i don't know if that will help.

a.)I have disable paging of NT Executive files
b>)Do not remember recently access network info.

sounds like more of a network related issue as opposed to a physical server issue...have you ran a performance baseline and scanned to see what is going on, on your network that could be hogging up traffic (other than the MSTSC).

You have QOS policies running on your firewall but what about your local network to prioritize that traffic, I.E. Layer3 switch for QOS?

What about virus/security software, is this a new solution or a recently implemented solution?

i have simple gigabit cisco switches to be exact the model number is as follows sg102-24. I am not to sure if this switch can be managed. I was not around when this system was put together so i cant say.
as for antivirus on the server itself we are not running anything because the SONIC is doing the gateway filtration.
