Slow opening documents from shares after server replacement

I recently swapped out a server using the following guide/procedures

Everything seems to be functioning, except when I turn off the old server, workstations seems to be very slow to open documents, programs, etc from the new server.

DHCP is managed by the router and DNS points to the new server.     If I turn the old server back on, documents open quickly, even though they are being loaded from the new server.    Does anyone have a suggestion?
