slow network copy between Win2000 pro and Win2003 std server
Posted on 2004-10-26
We have an interesting issue. Basically we have a new windows 2003 std server sat on a 1GB switch and 2 pc's hanging off. One pc runs win200 pro sp4 and a Dlink DGE550T (gigabit) network card, the other is XP sp1 and again has a gigabit network card.
when copying down the XP pc copies down say 10GB in about 10 mins but the windows 2000 pro pc takes anything up to 40 minutes. The issue however is the win2000 pc was fine until the server was replaced with the win2003 server.
I have checked the drivers and everything is up to date Dlink drivers seems unchanged since release.
any pointers appreciated as I assume this is either a server issue or win2k issue but everthing worked out fine until the server platform chaged.
thanks in advance
