We recently moved our users Home folders and shared drives onto a Novell OES server from a Novell Netware 6.5 server. All the folders are stored on a LeftHand SAN attached to the server through an iSCSI connection.
In certain labs in one of our buildings, explorer freezes/crashes on workstations when trying to access certain folders en mass.(a group of 30 students at once) This is intermittent, and usually happens for 3-5 machines. This does not happen at any of our other labs/buildings, but we have eliminated every on site possibility we can think of. (computer images, wiring, switches, fibre, computer hardware, etc.)
If I put these folders back on the Netware server, we do not have the crashing issue. We are trying to get rid of all our Netware, so keeping this configuration is not possible.
We have been trying to isolate the issue, but have not had much luck.
Long story short, any idea what we can do to find what the issue is? I have been looking at performance data of the Lefthand SAN, but everything seems to be in order.
