I've not installed personal edition for about 8 years, so I can't help you with any specifics there.


But as a general point for starting slow nodes, I'd enabled the Global DB trace (to see if the problem is with a slow DB). You should hopefully be able to do this by adding the following to your prconfig.xml file: -


<env name="database/dumpstats" value="true" />

<env name="database/traceEvents" value="preparedStatementUpdate;preparedStatementQuery;preparedStatement" />

<env name="alerts/database/operationTimeThreshold/suppressInserts" value="false" />



This should produce a dbOperations file in the Pega Temp directory under StaticContent/global/ServiceExport

Observe the start up log entries of the server and see which operation is taking more time to narrow down the issue.
