I've got a windows 2000 server with AD enabled..  

when the users are connected to the server, there is often a very long delay when accesssing the network shares.  I've tried many things to address the problem, and still the problem persists.

Now I noticed one thing today and I can't find any info on it anywhere..
When I try  "net stats server" on my server I get  a very high Sessions errored-out of 4000 for 11 days of uptime, now I know there is a problem there, but I can't think of where to even start looking.  Any suggestions?

Check these out and see if anything helps:

Also...if there are two NICs on the server, you may want to check the following:

Actually, I have 2 nics in one domain controller, but the other one only has one nic, and it also has many errored-out, in the 2000 range..

I've tried most of the microsoft fixes for "slow network shares"  There actually not slow to transfer data...  it's the initiall connection.  Once you are logged in, let's say he is working in word, when he comes to access his redirect MyDocuments, it takes about 30 ~ 45 seconds before the system reacts and list the files..

There is also time when people will loose connection to the network for no apparent reason.  The users have to reconnect to the server and sync there offline files.

I'm thinking that it might be a network problem, but I have no idea where to start.

The two NIC cards can definately be a problem.  Have you checked out the suggestions in the last link I provided you?  When you have two NICs homed in on a single server, that can cause lag time in autheticating/seeing network shares.

hmm one more odd thing though...

if I do a net stats server on my domain controler, I get this reading:

Sessions errored-out: 5284

The last time the server was rebooted was about..  2 weeks ago

Now I think this might be related, but I can't find any info on what this even means!!!
