I am experiencing a problem with several users that access shared folders on a Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 file server. Occasionally when users attempt to access any files on this server, explorer will hang for about 1-2 minutes before allowing the user to open the file, this will sometimes happen if the user simply highlights the file to view details such file size, last modified date, and such on the status bar of explorer.
I reviewed the event viewer logs on the workstations that experience this issue and did not find any relevant information. On the server side I noticed an event that takes place when the hang occurs under the security logs (below). These entries occurred at the exact same time the user reported the hang.
Just to give you some background on the infrastructure, here we go. It's a gigabit network all the way from the server to the workstations with not much congestion at all.
2 x vCPU's @ 2.27 GHz
6 GB RAM
1 TB Hard Drive RAID 5
1 Gbit Ethernet
One of the workstations I have been primary working with:
3.3 GHz i5 Quad Core
8 GB RAM
500 GB Hard Drive
Windows 8 Pro
1 Gbit ethernet
Let me know if you guys have any tips or need more info. I appreciate it!
