We have setup a new 2012 file server (datacenter) (vm in esx). Trying to enable folder redirection to this server as well. The issue we are having is the first time a windows 7 desktop tries to access a share on this file server there is a very long delay before anything comes up. (15 to 20 seconds) If we try accessing it afterwards from that desktop everything comes up right away. If a few hours passes before accessing the server again though the delay returns. Not having this issue with any servers on the network, only from the desktops. (all windows 7 and a couple win 10) Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
