Hi,

I have a client where their server crashed and I totally reloaded it this weekend. Now I have everything restored and Exchange / file shares are all fast and solid. However, the client has two MACS/Apples (whatever they are called) that have snow leopard on them. When they browse the shares, it is extremely slow. My research has shown that this slowdown might be caused by smb2 which the mac does not fully support. Is there anything I can do to fix the performance issues without modifying the windows server and slowing down the windows clients?

Strung, the first link I saw yesterday and might be what I have to try. The mac user doesnt like to run anything from the command line. The second link appears to be broken.

innocentdevil, how would I do that?

The macs were probable joined to the windows domain. Even though the same server names may have used on the re-install, I would un-join both macs and rejoin the Windows Domain. Use the directory utility for this, The directory Utility is located /Applications/Utilities/Directory Utility.
