Sas 9.3 slow to open

I have 64 bit SAS 9.3 TS1M2 and all hot fixes installed on a fully updated Windows 2008 R2 server. Sas takes 20-30 seconds to open, but the Sas log shows real time and cpu time under 2 seconds. Any idea what might be causing this?

I'm the server admin, so I can apply changes to Sas or the OS. Thanks.

Re: Sas 9.3 slow to open

What kind of SAS sessions are we talking about (DMS, Workspace Server, Connect server sessions)?

Is the server "physical" or virtual?

Is SAS installed on a local disk (if not where, and on what kind of filesystem)?

What is the server acitivy during a SAS session start (Memeory, CPU, I/O)? Perhaps using perfomon can give you some hints.

The global SAS option FULLSTIMER might also give some hints.

2 seconds is still quite slow, what is the server spec?
