    HOw does AD handle copy / paste actions,
    when I have 2003 file servers in a 2000 domain who collect daily thousands
    of jpg files from xp client machines
    Will every transfer need to ask permission..
    Does this generate a lot of traffic , witch can slow down the process of
    Problem is the collecting of files works fast for like 1 hour then the
    transfers seems to freeze and keep waiting, are there time outs, can AD have
    anything to do with it..

  2. In
    During the initial session establishment between two machines in an AD
    environment, the user account is authenticated based on the loggged on token
    of the user establishing the session. This is a one shot deal in the
    beginning. No it will not ask for permission over and over again, nor will
    it time out, well in theory as long as the session is not broken and the
    Kerb ticket gets renewed every 7 days.

    What you are seeing is obviously something else happening. It also depends
    on version of 2003, (SBS?) , SP level, workstation OS type and SP, what DNS
    addresses everyone is using in their ip properties, how many are copying at
    the same time, type and speed of switch, is VLANs exist, it could be
    spyware, it could be another app on the server doing it, it could be SMB
    signing (which goes back to what type of workstations), etc.

    So you see, there are many variables. If you can elaborate, that *may* help,
    but not guaranteed.

    did you mean that every copy paste action relies on the same ticket that was
    suppied at the logon process of the account.
    Or does every copy paste action serperate asks for permission in AD

    Keep in mind, if you are pasting, then I assume you will be pasting to a
    mapped drive or an already established UNC, therefore that means the session
    was already established, hence no prompting should be occuring after that.
