We have been moving from Novell to Microsoft for a couple years company wide. Until now, other than outlook, the apps were all local with the data being moved from a Novell server to a 2008R2 server. A week ago we moved our final drive which
was three apps the run .exe's from the server directories. Out of 300 PCs - all replaced in the last year based on ghosts - about 25 took ten minutes to run an app from the shortcut. All the other PCs don't have the trouble. I first went
to that vendor but after troubleshooting, I realized they had slow connections to any windows drives. They were fine hitting the Novell drives. I'm guessing since they only pulled documents from the MS drives until now, the slowdown wasn't felt.
Running the larger exe is where the problem started to show. I've tried many things I found online so far to no resolution. These things include:
autotuning set to restricted, normal or disabled
turned smb2 off/on
turned RDC off/on
set NIC to autonegotiate
Not server or switch based as good PC is sometimes in the cube right beside bad pc.
