SSMS slow startup March 7, 2008Posted by furrukhbaig in Performance, slow start, SQL Server 2005, SSMS, Tips.
Friend of mine asked me “why SSMS is taking up to a minute to startup” on his office machine and I was not able to figure out the problem untill I find the post on Euan Garden’s Blog.
The quick fix is to add following lines in host file
# entry to get around diabolical Microsoft certificate checks
# which slow down non internet connected computers
This is to do with certificate validity check. It fix the problem with my friends machine. Hope it helps others too.
