We have a local network with Windows domain and with Netware servers. Accessing from Windows 7 to Netware volumes is fine but I have noticed slowness in many different situations:
The best example is connecting to a UNC path \\Server2012\share - it usually takes about 20-40 seconds to pop up. Now close the window. Wait 30 seconds and try it again and it's almost instantaneous.
Now wait an hour and repeat and you have the same results. It's like it's authenticating and then keeping you cached. So subsequent requests to the SAME server come up quicker. But if you wait an hour it needs to authenticate you again and takes longer.
Running the workstation without installed Netware Client and access to \\Server2012\share shows the share instantaneous...

Any idea? Thank you in advance!
