Slow-lag behavior with domain users at individual station nodes

Copper Contributor

Hello friends.

I was wondering if you could help me with next situation.


I have a Control System managed by 2 redundant servers (Windows Server 2019 Standard) with redundant domain controllers, functioning with 3 windows 10 pro clients.


- Recently, I have created a couple of new users on the active directory of main server, and I noticed that, on 2 specific clients, the windows behavior is issued, working slow, not opening the start menu, and all applications are working slow (Other users on these stations node works normally).

- To explain myself better, if I login these users on 2 of 3 clients I get this slow issue, but if I login in the other remaining client or other servers, the users and windows behavior works ok normally.

- I checked the configurations with active directory and compare with other nodes inside the domain, and I don't find any difference.

- Tried also re-entering these 2 nodes clients to the domain, and same behavior.


Could you please help me or give me some tips to check?

Task Manager\Processes tab then sort on the CPU and or MEM columns to see what process consumes the resources.      



Hello @Dave Patrick and thanks for the reply.


The processes are not the case, CPU use and RAM use is really low. 


I checked the Windows Event Viewer and I am having several critical errors with ESENT ID 454, 494 and 490. Some issue with these specific nodes. 


I am searching how to solve this; do you have any thoughs?

Thanks @Dave Patrick for your help.


I removed the users completaly and also deleted these cache files mentioned on the specific clients. I created the users again and now they are working OK.
