slow access to serve

There seems to be a delay accessing one of my servers and i can't seem to work out why.

Where should i be looking?

going to \\server1 loads instantly, but going to \\server2 takes about 10-20 seconds before the shares show up.

They both go to the same switch

Because it can't connect it's failing to map important drive shares, stopping software from running.

this is the scenario:

out of 12 computers that map the drive from the new server:
4 mapped and worked just fine
4 mapped but when trying to access there was a 15 second delay before the drives content was accessible.
4 didn't map the drive

all computers where in random locations, all wired, and all mapped shares from the other servers just fine.

using the IP doesn't make any difference

any ideas?

It's a HP ProLiant ML350 G6 with Broadcom NICS and latest drivers

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
