Browsing network folder hangs for standard users
Posted on 2008-06-19
Setup - we have 2 x W2K servers with AD installed: ServerA located in Aberdeen and ServerB located in London. VPN connecting both servers.
Both servers are on same domain and can speak to each other with no problems. I have users in the Aberdeen office connected to ServerA wanting to access files on a shared folder called CAD located in the London office - ServerB. London users have not reported any problems, but when my Aberdeen users try to browse any sub folder within the shared CAD folder, their system hangs and they get "Not Responsing" in their task manager.
Confusing part in this is if I try this logged in on my machine as the domain administrator or myself for instance, (I'm a member of the administrators group) I can browse all the sub folders without any hassle and its super quick, no freezing up for a few seconds while the systems play catch up with each one another...
However If I login onto a problem users machine as domain admin or my account problem exists.
I have looked at the permissions and I cant find anything on that side. I looked at the network adaptors on each problem machine and cant see anything either.
What do you think?
