Hi, I'm having some problems with very slow web page loading when the 'Website Content Directory' is not stored locally.
I'm moving our dev platform from w2kserver/IIS5 to w2k3web/IIS6.
In IIS 5 I could just select the mapped drive path, i.e. W:\webfiles\project1\wwwroot.
When viewing this site the content would load just as fast as it would if it comming from the local drive.
In IIS 6 I have to use a full path. i.e. \\fileserver\webshare\webfiles\project1\wwwroot.
And content takes much longer.
I'm guessing here, but I'm wondering if this is the problem: When a mapped drive is used, windows itself has already authenticated the connection... maybe?
And when I use a \\ type path IIS is authenticating every file each time it connects?
I dunno... over to you! Cheers.
