We recently deployed a new (very fast) server utilizing Microsoft Server 2008 / Hyper-V and are having problems with server responsiveness, especially in the mornings, on one of our hyper-v file servers. Users will go to save files to a file share located in this particular hyper-v file server (all users are on Windows 7) and connected via Gigabit network, yet they get the doomed "circle of death" for at least 2 - 3 minutes before the server will actually save the file. I have gone in and tried to make sure all of the power saving options are turned off / disabled but the users are still complaining about the unresponsiveness. Any ideas what might be going on here? TIA!
