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?
