so background, last year we migrated from a 2003 to a 2008R2 windows server, i used robocopy to move everyones redirected home folder, everything went fine and for the last year no issues.
last week we have completely stopped using the old 2003 server, so we turned it off and moved it to storage, then end users started to complain about long file open and save times, (taking 2 minutes to open a 29kb word doc!!!) we checked everything, and made
changes to our 2008r2 server, to no avail, then i remembered the old server, and thought 'why not' plugged it in and problem went away, the speed of the file opening went back to normal,
now i cannot work out why, everything was migrated to the 2008r2 server, the old server is doing nothing (i thought) but the network needs it to help users open files.
another way to solve, is to delete the end users roaming profiles/local profiles and when they log in the problem is gone, but i cant really do this to 300 users
obviously there is something that is on the users profile that is pointing them to the old server,
any idea where? or how to fix? or am i doomed to rebuilt 300 user accounts???
