Copying files

Hi all,

I have a strange issue that I am struggerling to know where to go.

I have a terminial server in Holland that users from all over the world connect to. For somereason copying from the Holland TS server to any server/laptop in the French location fails, with path to deep unless the file is less than about 44kb then it works fine.

I thought it was likely to be the network however from a seperate server in the same location as the TS I can copy any size of file to the french location.

note from any other location I can copy from the Holland server with no issue, and also from any other location I can copy too the french location.

So I have one server which refuses to copy large files to one network segment.

Does anyone have any idea where I can start to look? The network team say there are no errors on the network that they can see....

What is the exact error message you are receiving?
Get hold of Process Monitor from http://technet.microsoft.com/sysinternals, start it up on the French server having the issue, and copy a file.  Watch the clock to identify the second that the error occurs, stop the capture, select a 5 second range ending 1 second after you saw the error, right-click on a "SUCCESS" result and exclude all SUCCESSful lines, then look back for the error, probably from explorer.exe (try a filter for that first (ctrl-L, include process explorer.exe)) and remove that if you don't see it there.

Process Monitor will probably give you all the output you need to trace this issue.
