Have you ever faced that new environment installation process takes too much time? In our case to finish it needed approximately 10 hours.
How many minutes/hours a standard creation time?
Unfortunately after installation the slowdown remains (login, and any operations...).
Win server 2012 r2 + sql server 2012 express sp1
This usually takes about 1 hour.
In your situation something should have gone wrong.
I suggest you delete the SQL server database (created) and try again.
Thanks for your answer.
I think it wont help, It is a recently reinstalled server, first time we tried recreate the database, but it didn't help so we started from the beginning, fresh server install etc...
Any other idea?
