SharePoint 2010: Opening document -- "Contacting server for information" for a long time
Posted on 2010-11-19
I've created a virtual lab environment with Windows Server 2008 R2 servers, SharePoint Server 2010, SQL Server 2008 R2, Exchange Server 2010, and Windows 7 with Office 2010.
Please note that this environment works very well performance wise and in other ways; the SharePoint sites loads fast for instance and everything is good -- except for one thing:
Question: When opening an Office document (Word 2010 or Excel 2010) from a document library, it takes unacceptable long time, up to a minute just to open the document, while the splash screen is showing; most of the time it says "Contacting server for information".
Also, for instance, when I check in a document, it might take minutes; everything I do with Office documents in SharePoint 2010 just takes so long time.
(If working with Office 2010 outside of SharePoint, so to speak, it is super fast.)
Anybody know why this is, and what I can do about it?
