Hi all: Ever since we installed our new servers (January-February) we have been experiencing slow network performance. We currently run OES11 SP2 servers and use Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows 7 (IR9 and 10) on Windows 7 64-bit workstations. We also use ZCM 11 SP3 clients. All our workstations are members of the same domain (functional level 2008 R2).

Here is what I observe. Right after completing a successful login access to any OES server takes 2-3 seconds for the directory list to display. Once one server has been accessed we do not see the delay to other OES server. Browsing and access to the domain servers seems unaffected. But after a few minutes and symptoms return. I have tried various remedies detailed in a few TIDS and Cool solutions but none seem to help. I have elevated the Novell network providers to the top of the provider list. Wireshark captures don't show any smoking guns.

Suggestions? Thanks, Chris.
