Server 2011 slow network access
Posted on 2014-07-23
We have a windows SBS 2011 server which has 4 or 4 clients connecting to it. The server has 24gb of memory, and a 2.4ghz processor
When clients are browsing folders of photos, it can be extremely slow. You see the progress bar edging along slowly - sometimes taking 10 mins for 10 photos! It has also been reported slow to save CAD files to the same locations.
Removed AVG Anti-Virus off the PC's
Removed AVG Anti-Virus off server
Tested on second NIC on the server
Disabled firewall on server
Checked hard drives/RAID - no failures
Tested accessing/saving photos between two PC’s (Peer to Peer) - performance seems normal which rules out general network traffic
Can anyone give some suggestions on which way to go?
