Slow access on Domain
Posted on 2011-10-23
I have a problem with slow access on a remote server. I am also permitted no access and given no information by the defence department to solve the problem. First of all the system is slow anyway because of bandwidth. Previously, my VO application which uses foxpro (.dbf) files worked fine with several users under workgroups on a local file server. Now they've created a domain and put the data on a remote server with the .exe and .dll files on the local C: drive (which is hidden).
For the first user to access the files and produce a report, the speed is reasonably fast, but if they stay with the databases open and a second user runs the same report, the second user runs very slowly - up to 10 minutes instead of 3-4 seconds. This didn't happen under workgroups local server.
Does anyone have an idea why this happens please.
