The SALDM.exe use about 90% CPU Resource.

I have a HP NAS1200S server which run on windows 2003. I find that the process SALDM.exe eat up almost all the CPU resource. which make the user access to network in the very slow response.
Can someone help to resolve this issue?

Re: The SALDM.exe use about 90% CPU Resource.

Richard,

saldm.exe is the Server Appliance Local Display Manager, and is a service that is part of the Microsoft Server Appliance SDK. It is there to allow server appliances to display information on small local displays (e.g. an LCD on the front panel).
Server Appliances that do not have these displays seem to still have this service installed and running. The service tries to talk to the non-existant display and goes a bit wrong. It is ok to disable the service "Local Display Manager" and reboot (you cannot stop the service otherwise). This prevents the problem occuring in the future.
