Proliant ML350 G5 Slow data transfer problem

I have a Big trouble of slow data transfer on my ML350 G5 8gig of RAM and Win2003 Enterprise.

My C drive is on RAID 1 SAS ,I have a D drive alone on the SAS controller and a E drive on the IDE channel.
The trasnfer rate on each drive start Fast and then after 10-15 secondes It because super slow.
I've done every update of HP driver and Nothing have change.

I've play with Pagefile and nothing have change.

This server is hosting many VMWare station and it took almost 30minutes to boot each OS.

Transfering data from drive to drive can take 4hours for a 20gig file.

There is something wrong but I can't find what.

Please someone give me some Q's

Thanks

I didn't find anything yet.
I found out that many people have the same Issue but no fix was found.
Data transfer is extremly slow. My desktop Core 2 Duo with RAID 0 (2 sata) is faster then my server and cost 4x less!!!

Re: Proliant ML350 G5 Slow data transfer problem

This it seems is not a unique problem, it's driving me mad too and I've hunted and tried nearly everything.

I have server 2003 installed on a Proliant ML310 G5 server and when I try to transfer large files the system practically hangs it's running so slow.

It runs so slow my exchange server has difficulty connecting to it and yet the CPU process is about 3%

It has 4Gb ram and has no other issues than the fact the whole system slows to a crawl on large file transfers.

Hopefully someone will come up with a solution soon.
