Remember all the heart ache we had with this … and having to disable TCP Chimney just for the server to actually stay working
Wel Michael has found the latest installment in the way of a new KB that essentially sets EnableTCPChimney, EnableRSS,and EnableTCPA to 0
948496 An update to turn off default SNP features is available for Windows Server 2003-based and Small Business Server 2003-based computers
What is interesting about the KB is the list of issues that may occur when Windows Server 2003 SNP is turned on!
- You cannot create a Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) connection to the server.
- You cannot connect to the Exchange server from a computer that is running Microsoft Outlook.
- Inactive Outlook connections to the Exchange server may not be cleaned up
- You experience slow network performance.
- You experience intermittent RPC communications failures.
- The server stops responding.
- The server runs low on nonpaged pool memory
Not to serious then!
