Hi we have just migrated to a New Hyper V environment, which consists of Exchange Server File Sever and Domain Controller

Via group policy users have a mapped network drive to various files.

When trying to open Office Documents such as Word Excel Etc there seems to be a considerable delay in opening.

once they double click to open the file they get Downloading from \\Server\location

I think this is just happening on Office docs as I have tested against various other files such as Jpegs and .PDFS and they seem to be fine

Is this limited to just your network share or does opening local files take a long time also?  What are your user's permissions on the network share (NTFS and share permissions)?

Yes its just on the Network share .pdfs seem to open fine it appears to just be office documents.

Share permissions are domain users full control

And the NTFS permissions on the actual target folder?  If users do not have at least modify rights to the actual folder, then Office can be really slow since it tries unsuccessfully to write temp files.
