Slow browsing of DFS folders

Discussion in 'File Systems' started by Paul Hartnett, Jul 9, 2008.

  1. I've got 3 Windows 2003 servers all set up with DFS and also running terminal
    services. Users can log onto the server and browse quickly through DFS
    folders for ashort while and then they'll hang for up to 5 minutes for the
    next folder to show the contents.
    All replication is working fine, and all users hit the DFS server on their
    own site, so no traffic is going over the WAN links. All performance counters
    on the servers show no issues.
    I've applied the patch for KB915377, but this hasn't resolved the issue.
    I've also rebuilt one of the servers and only with a single user logged on
    the issue will reoccur.

    Any ideas?

  2. Hi Paul,

    The Patch you just installed on the Windows Server only or both XP Client
    also installed?

    I also have the same case like you, but I just installed the Patch on XP

    My Server are R2 version x64, XP have both domain based and non domain based
    with SP2 or SP3...

    Sometime it also hang, but just within one minutes.

    This look like Microsoft make something wrong
