DFS share is extremely slow

By cperry ·
I'm having some issues with my Windows Server 2003 DFS share.

When I type:
It takes 4 minutes to open a Word Document.

When I type:
It takes about 2 seconds to open the same document.

It seems to happen on every computer I've tested though those are primarily Vista machines. I did test it on 1 XP computer with similar results. In Windows 7 beta it seems to open properly though. It takes about 10 seconds instead of 2.

Doesn't seem to be any DNS issues and currently it appears as if there is no Replication policies in place.

I didn't setup the DFS share and am a bit unfamiliar with them but I'm supporting it now so I'm not sure where to look. Most of the similar issues which I've Googled seem to be specific issues which don't apply to my setup.

Any help would be appreciated.

Typically you should contact Microsoft on this issue or hit the Technet forums. There may be a hotfix for this since it's not an uncommon question.

Have you tried troubleshooting with FSRM?(File Server Resource Manager)
