Windows 2003 server

P: n/a
I have moved an Access 97 back end from a Novell 3.2 server to Windows 2003
server. It is noticeably slower. Does anyone have some best practices for
2003 server?

To get back up to speed, have a look at Tony's page
here http://www.granite.ab.ca/access/performancefaq.htm
Note also that 'packet signing' defeats most file server
network optimisations. On a file server, that should be
turned off.

Everything is the same except the server. The path to the backed even
remained the same because I am using a distributed file system on a Windows
2000 Active directory serve.

Implementing persistant connections improved the application speed.
Note also that 'packet signing' defeats most file server
network optimisations. On a file server, that should be
turned off.

I am looking for more information on 'packet signing'.
