owa and powershell take times on exchange 2010

Not open for further replies.


Our infrastructure is composed of Exchange 2010 on Windows 2008 R2 AD running on windows 2003 server. Everything works fine for cons I noticed a considerable delay during the initialization of powershell and when you open OWA, it takes about 10 minutes to open the login page.
Note no error in the log events relating to such a symptom.
Thank you answer me



how many mailboxes are stored on the exchange-server? which roles are installed? which hardware is inside the server?



Multiple role are installed in same server "mailbox,hub and cas", RAM 8GB , CPU 2Ghz , we have only 30 mailboxes in the same database

We runing our exchange on vmware , Primary domaine controler is physical



exist this problem all the time or only after a reboot? how was the usage of cpu and ram?

do you must wait 10 mins to show the logon-prompt or are this 10minutes after you have entered your credentials?

do you start the exchange shell trough remote or local on the exchange server?


thats what was bothering me.. same scenario here but we have exchange on physical...

its not a standard practice as Microsoft don't recommend it ..

Regards Shah


-All time the problem persist , Ram usage in initialistion process 3Gb

-I take 10 minutes afteri have entered my credentials

-I connect localy on powershell


call it whatever but exchange utilizes all RAM provided.
Regards Shah


have you more than one domain-controller and have this DC the the global catalog?

have you tried to enable the logging-level on some events?

Set the eventloglevel for each following events to expert

Example: Set-Eventloglevel -identity "MSExchange ADAccess\General" -Level Expert

MSExchange OWA\Core
MSExchange OWA\ADNotifications
MSExchange ADAccess\General
MSExchange ADAccess\LDAP


Andy_ch gave some good suggestion.

If there are more information regarding to your issue, it will be better.
I want to verify that how about opening the EMC, is it also slow.
There are new tool we could use to troubleshoot the Management tool issue, you could refer to below:
