I have 4 XenApp 6.0 servers on Server 2008 R2 SP1 in a double-hop scenario, two for published desktops and the others for published applications. The issue we are having is when the a user attempts to open a shortcut (i.e. "filename.xls") the application is taking almost 30-40 seconds to load. That same file if opened normally on a locally installed version of that same program will take less than 10 seconds. My users really only use our ERP system, and microsoft office. I also noticed that the file path for that shorcut that comes up (while the application is opening) is "Contacting: \\Client\DriveLetter$\...\
ls". The drive they are accessing is not hidden or administrative, so I am unsure why the "$" is there. I understand that there is some extra time with opening the file, but I'm wondering:
Is this amount of time normal?
If not, are there any suggestions to increase the speed?
Is there anyone who has set up a double-hop scenario and had published apps open efficiently?
Thanks in Advance,
