Files copying SLOW via 100bT server-to-server.
Posted on 2006-04-04
Hello. I am transferring files from an NT4 server, to a WindowsServer2003 server, both are on 100bT ethernet on the same subnet, but different NT domain. I am copying 5 gb of files in one drag-n-drop "copy" swoosh, via remote drive mapping.
It works fine, but it's SLOW - it's copying about 1mb per minute, that's it! If I OPEN a 1 mb file from the remote (mapped) server, it opens in a second, but the copying is MUCH slower.
Anyone know the reason for this? Can I do the copy any faster? Is it related to the cross-domain issue? (I don't see how it could be.)
Thanks for any advice -
