|Scenario is as follows:|
Rebuilt my server with (I believe) the same configuration as my old server. I'm running Windows Server 2003 Enterprise 32 bit and am having major issues with file transfers/copying. When copying a larger file from my PC which is on the domain(a 3GB for example) the copying process freezes up roughly 3/4 of the way and I get a "network path no longer exists or not available" message. This is by using Windows explorer, robocopy, xcopy, you name it. I should also mention that this completely locks up the server as well.
The really strange thing I discovered after about 3 or 4 rebuilds and a lot of swearing is that this problem does not exist until I define my server role. I was able to copy 32GB of data with no problem after a fresh install with no roles defined. As soon as I set up the Domain Controller/DNS server role the file copying problem surfaced. File copying from folder to folder on the same drive on the server is ridiculously slow too, although it is ultimately successful. What really has me confused is file transfer from server to client (my PC) works like a champ with no problems.
I've turned off SMB signing, increased page file size but the problem still persists. Please, please help me.
