We are currently running NetWare OES on VMWare on an HP Blade. Our backup speeds are 73 kb per second (not the 20k kb per second we can restore with). Does anyone else have this type of config and do you have any pointers for speeding the backup up?

OES NetWare 6.5 SP 5
VMWare 2.5.0 Build 64192

NIC is set at VMWare not in OS for duplex
NIC uses "ISA" and "under 16mb" in OS.

The backups usually start at 1400 kb per second and slow down to 73 kb per second.

Any help appreciated.
