Windows XP PC's are slow browsing a novell network
Posted on 2006-04-27
We have around 120 client PC's or so on a novell netware network. All of the clients are either running Win 2K or Win XP.
With Win 2K, the users can browse our network drives with no problems.
The new PC's (and the ones with higher specifications) have Windows XP, but when clicking on folders on the network drives it can sometimes take about 3 mins to open! This is becomming very problamatic for my users.
It seems to mainly occur on folders that are 3 sub folders deep - for example browsing H:\folder1\folder2 is no problem, but if we try to click on Folder 3, in other words H:\folder1\folder2\folder3 it will just hang.
