Re: Slow in opening .dwg from Window 2008 R2 server

i dont think XP uses SMB2 to talk back to the server. SMB is a 2008/windows 7 issue

After the changes made at server 2008 from SMB 2 to 1 and restarts,  the problem persists on XP machine.

then look at your drawings. it's most likely the source of your problems.

I tried to purge and re-create the drawings and disable the signature validation options "c:\WINDOWS\system32\AcSignOpt.exe" but, I repeat,  problem persist on machines with xp 64 bit

We are using XP 32 bit and having trouble when we migrate the server to Windows 2008 R2.

I just changed the SMB setting on the server (disable SMB 2.0) but this didn't change a thing.

The other locations (about 85) where we use Windows 2003, we don't have performance issues.

The locations a from 20 to 450 workstations. The location where I am testen are about 10 concurrent users!

10 concurrent users should not create enough traffic to cause performance problems. I still think your issue is elsewhere

But there are problems and we cannot stop Windows 2008 roll-out.

Hope someone have more tips. The problem is in Stabicad - Stabibase.

If I try to copy the same network folders, with for example 20 .dwg file, with same security permissions on a 2003 server, the problem on 64-bit machines has not present.
