I have DFS enabled and drives mapping to local file servers based on lowest cost ordering method.  I have one office complaining of slow network navigation, navigating network drives, opening closing files, etc...  All other offices are not having this issue.  Is there a way to verify that DFS is mapping their drives correctly to their local file server an not another file server across the WAN?

First a few questions:

1. What does your AD Inter-site Transport setup look like?
2. Also, what is the connection bandwidth between sites?

Here is a screenshot of the Inter-site transport.  I can go into further detail if you need.

Inter-Site
Bandwidth is a 4.5mb MPLS circuit.

1. How is the dfs name configured?
2. Is the issue on 1 specific share or across everything served by dfs?
3. Have you tested against a non-dfs supported share?
4. Have you tested the INDY to GR latency & bandwidth?
--- check out Sysinternals PSPING to test both items.

Sorry for all the questions, but best to test the easy stuff first.
