We migrated to Windows 2008 server from server 2000.  When user try to copy files or pull data from mapped drive, it runs very slow compared to server 2000.  The Windows 2008 server is an HP Proliant DL180G5 with 2 quad core cpu's, 16 gig of ram and 5 300gig SAS in raid 5 configuration.  The server is the domain controller and is running terminal server in app mode&yes I know that is not recommended, but the owner wanted it that way.  Is there some way to speed things up?  I know that 2008 server is like Vista on steroids.  Help&..Thanks.

I recommend to check your NIC settings. Are speed and duplex on auto and is this on the switch also done?

The switch is set to "Auto".  If "Priority & VLAN" is enabled, will that have give any problems to the network?
