Systems locking up or extremely show until hard shutdown
I have several users that are experiencing an issue with their systems that I believe I have narrowed it down to SEP.
Dell Desktops and Laptops with Seagate Self Encrypting Drives (SED) either 250gb or 320gb. All of the issues, seem to occur with the 320gb drives. I originally thought a bad batch of drives, but the group is very random on when the Dell's were ordered. The users will experience a severe slow down and the hard drive light is constantly on, but when looking at the process utilization, there is none. I have disabled the encryption, and tested, and the issue still occurs. Sometimes a rebuild from scratch will resolve, but it usually re-occurs. The issue is temporarily resolved after a hard shut down and restart, but only for about a week or so.
Any suggestions at all?? Thank you in advance!!!
