User name shortened, net access slows

By alee100 ·
Windows 2K server, XP Pro workstations. Users log on fine, then after a while (hour or two) the user name shown when clicking the Start button goes from full name to first name only (click Start, the name shows at top of menu). The users say access to network drives slow down about the same time.

User name shortened, net access slows

Sounds like a casual relationship.

You need a bit more information regarding what is going on with the LAN and with the file servers. I would begin with a data analyzer on the network, followed by a look at processes on the servers.
