SYMPTOMS

When you copy files from Microsoft Windows Server 2003 or from Microsoft Windows XP to a Microsoft distributed file system (DFS) share or to a Samba DFS share, the file copy process is very slow. This problem occurs when you copy files to the DFS share, and you specify explicit credentials. If you copy files from the DFS share, you do not experience this problem.

CAUSE

This problem occurs if you explicitly specify the credentials to use when you connect to the DFS share. In this scenario, a new TCP session and an SMB session is opened four times for every file that is copied to the DFS share. A NetBIOS session may also open four times for every file that is copied to the DFS share.
