agreenbhm Posted August 11, 2009 Share Posted August 11, 2009 I've had it up to here with this **** network transfer problem! I had Server 2003 installed on my server and all was well. Now I'm running Server 2008 x86 on the server and I can't seem to fix this issue.Issue is this: transferring files TO my server from my workstation (was running Vista x64 until yesterday, when it is now running 7 x64, but the problem occurs on both) is very slow. The transfer starts off fast (10 to 11MB/s) but then drops to about 2.5-3.5MB/s after about 5 or 10 seconds.I am trying to copy my Outlook PST file (800MB +/-). I copied the file to the server from the workstation (using the workstation's Explorer) and it goes slowly (like described above). I copied the file from the server to the workstation (from the workstation's Explorer) and it is fast. I copied the file from the server to the workstation (from the server's Explorer) and it is fast. I copied the file from the workstation to the server (from the server's Explorer) and it is fast.So this only occurs using Vista/7's Windows Explorer. However, Vista was copying files at a fine speed to the server when it was running 2003. Ever since the 2008 installation I've been having the issue. So I'm fairly certain it's a 2008 problem (or at least a problem with my install).I've tried numerous registry tweaks and NIC settings. I have two NICs in the server, and the issue occurs regardless of which one i'm using to copy the file. I've enabled TCP offloading, disabled it, changed max IRQs, changed MSCSS, changed TCP ACK, changed 2008's TCP autotuning, and countless other things.Does anyone have any idea how I can fix this?
