When logging into Symantec Data Center Security Server (SDCSS) Console it hangs. If you edit a policy, or click on something that requires a query to the database, it will hang for a few minutes. This only appears to happen when you launch the console and after approximately 5-10 minutes will go away.
There aren't any error messages but if you open task manager and look at the processes you will see console(32).exe that is consuming 25% consistently. The value does not appear to decrease.
Things to verify
In this case the cause was related to a corrupt user account within SDCSS. A way to test to see if this is the cause is to login using another account and see if the behavior goes away.
