I have a multi site network Novell Network and I have added a couple of Windows servers as needed. I have the Primary Domain controller in the main office and another server at a separate site.
I have setup the external server as a Global Catalog and DHCP server. I have shared some folders on this server and added a Net Map command to the Novell login to map them when users logon.
It is taking forever to connect to the server whether it is during the initial logon or a Net Map command issued later. I am also getting several complaints about the server being extremely slow after a connection is made.
The server is on the same subnet as all the local computers and I have created a subnet in AD and assigned it to the site. I am using the Primary Domain controller in the main office as the DNS server. The users who are trying to connect are not part of the domain and the Net Map command specifies the user as guest.
Any suggestions as to why it takes so long to connect and the access to files is slow afterwards?
