- You experiencehigh CPU usage on an Office Communications Server 2007 R2 front-end server.
- Users who are logged on are logged off.
- Most end-user scenarios such as instant messaging, presence, conferencing, and audio/video calls are unreliable.
- Many endpoints perform NTLM authentication.
- A long delay occurs on the network links either between the Office Communications Server 2007 R2 front-end server and its domain controller or between the domain controller for the Office Communications Server 2007 R2 front-end server and the domain controller for the user authentication domain.
Note The network link delay in seconds should be less than the number of Netlogon secure channels (default is 2) divided by the expected number of user logons per second. For example, for a delay of 0.1 seconds, the logon rate should not exceed 20 per second.
If you cannot decrease the network link delay, try to increase the
MaxConcurrentApi registry entry for Netlogon on the server and on the server's domain controller.
