Hi,

I have several 2000 servers all connected to one cisco switch (catalyst
2900).

when i copy a 35M file between all other servers, it takes about 5 to 10
seconds. Just this one server is awfully slow to copy to or from any other
server. it takes about two minutes to copy the same file. i checked the
speed and duplex setting on each machine and all are in auto mode.

what else could be wrong? shall i worry about the cable and the network card
on the bad machine?

thanks.

Simon
