I have a veritas backup server.  I also have another server that is part of the same domain.  Both are running windows 2003 server.  These two servers are connected to the same switch pix 4507 but are located in different buildings.  The veritas server is connected to the switch via 10 ft fiber.  The other server however has 100 ft fiber connected to a patch panel which connects to antoher patch panel which ultimately connects to the switch.  When I perform a restore to this server from my veritas backup server I get connection failures. The restore starts but then hangs and utimately times out.  Also the amt of time it takes to restore is much greater than if I were restoring to a server closer to the backup server.  Wondering how I can troubleshoot to determine if its dirty fiber?

How are the patch panels connected (fiber or twisted pair).

Check all your connectors to make sure they are properly terminated.   Get a fiber tester and check the end to end connection.
