OS X 10.6, all updates applied

When I try and mount a SMB share on our file server, Finder slows to a crawl. The share will eventually mount, but it could take as long as 10 minutes, and then it will take the same amount of time to browse through folders.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Which one worked? Was it the delayed ack problem?

the first one worked, just using the full share name instead of just the server, but I am keeping that page book-marked for future reference

And this is also interesting. Before, I would have to re-connect every several hours. Since I mounted the share using the full SMB path, the share has not disconnected.
