Hi EE,

We have a legacy application that is installed locally on client machines and connects to a database which is stored on DFS. The problem is that program is losing connection randomly to the database it requires.  This problem started occurring after we started hosting our DFS in a Datacentre so I am sure it's a network issue of some sort, my query is there a way to prioritize resources on a DFS? If not how would I begin troubleshooting this issue?

Thank you.
