Hi Guys,

We have a couple of users that is using Mac’s (OS version Mavericks) to connect to windows (windows 2008R2/2012R2) network shares.
I have tried the following protocols to connect to the network shares. (SMB1;SMB2;CIFS;AFP,NFS) But access is still very slow.

Access to windows 2003 shares seems to work fine.

Also I have installed Extreme Z-IP on a test server and tried access the shares. Still very slow.

Also when I restart the Mac it keeps asking for username and password to connect to the network share even though the login details are stored in the keychain.

Its seems only related to Mavericks.

I believe there is no real fix to the SMB2 protocol but only workarounds.

Does anybody know any other workarounds that might be helpful?

Thanks
