File/open screen takes a long time to show network drives when logged on as a user
On Win2k Pro:
My problem is that while logged in as administrator, clicking file/open on any application shows me the available drives and folders immediately. But when logged in as any other user/power user the file/open screen takes a long time to show the contents (network drives are present). Why is that? What can I do to fix this? All the apps were installed as administrator.
This usually doesn't occur on a user-by-user basis, so I'm not sure what is causing the problem to appear unique to non-admin users. It sounds like the master browser or AD global catalog server is not responding quickly to a resource list request. This could be caused by high network traffic or an over-taxed resource list host.
