DL385, Slow Console Graphic

I have recently installed a range of DL385 Opteron 275 Servers with W2K3 SP1 and have noticed that my console (direct attached to server) seems to give a VERY SLOW experience in everything involving graphics.

In general I would say it looks like everything showing on my screen is going through a bottleneck.

All components are up-to-date.

When I establish a RDP connection, everything seems just fine.

Anyone else seen this, or know what’s wrong ??

Re: DL385, Slow Console Graphic

What if you connect a monitor directly to the server?

Re: DL385, Slow Console Graphic

The 385's with W2K3 SP1 I've had my hands on all show this behaviour - slow graphics on console but not in remote desktop.

Guess it's a driver issue.

Re: DL385, Slow Console Graphic

*Bump*

Any Fix yet? Iv upgraded any drivers i could find that would relate to this.

A good way to test for it is to click start>shutdown. The shutdown box will appier, and the background will slowly fade to black and white. As it is fading the mouse will lag severly untill its finished.

Re: DL385, Slow Console Graphic

Same problem here. Any news on this?
Tried several drivers, but no go. Haven't found any dedicated Windows 2003 drivers.

Re: DL385, Slow Console Graphic

Hello,

We have bought several new DL385 AMD in the last month.It appears to me that there are problems which are not common with the INTEL based servers.See below of problems new servers.

1)System board replaced new server
2)CPU overheated new server
3)software hanging W2K3
4)Graphics issue.
5)slow response when logging on.

Re: DL385, Slow Console Graphic

Hi !

I also have same case to replace the mother board on DL385G1 server with dual AMD/280 CPU. I almost to request the DOA.

Currently, I install the RHEL4AS_x64 which sometime get server reboot cause by "ASR Detected by System ROM" ??

I am still working to identify which ASR cause by h/w, s/w ??

Appreciated, if you know the root cause then save me a lot of time.

Cody.

Re: DL385, Slow Console Graphic

I just set up a new DL385 and it needed a new system board and/or processopr before it would even boot up. Now that those have been replaced I'm seeing the slow console graphics.

I haven't searched for newer graphics drivers yet...I hope this system is as reliable as my previous Proliants. Now I'm wondering if I made a mistake going for the Opteron instead of the Xeon.

Re: DL385, Slow Console Graphic

Have you tried changing the hardware acceleration to full?

Right click on the display and select properties, when the Display Properties window comes up select the setting tab, and depress
the advanced button, another window will pop up with additional settings, select the Troubleshooting tab and move the Hardware acceleration bar to the FULL position.

There is also a driver version which will resolve this, but I can't attach it here since it's around 8 MB zipped.

Re: DL385, Slow Console Graphic

I applied the latest Proliant Service Pack (PSP7.51 I think) and it seems to have fixed the slow console, although to be honest I haven't used it very much yet due to other issues.
