I have an issue where pictures stored on a local, physical server (size 2-6mb) take 10-15 seconds to open on Client PC's.
Environment: Server is a Dell PowerEdge R640, Intel Xeon Silver 4214R, 49152MB RAM, 1.7TB in a RAID. They have one gigabyte switch for their office in which the server and PC's all connect to. PCs are all brand new as of 3 months ago. They are all in a domain.
Troubleshooting so far:
-Rebooted the switch with no effect.
-Performed the following steps to turn off thumbnail's in group policy, this had no effect:
-Go to the following Group Policy section User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> File Explorer; -This section has three options that allow you to manage the creating of the thumbs.db file by File Explorer: -Turn off the display of thumbnails and only display icons on network folders (prevents thumbs.db file from being created on shared network folder) -Turn off caching of thumbnails in hidden thumbs.db files -Turn off the display of thumbnails and only display icons
-Created a GPO for Network Discovery for client PC's as described here - https://www.technig.com/enable-network-discovery-via-group-policy/
-Tried different photo viewing app's - IrfanView, Windows Photo viewer, Paint. No improvement there.
What other things should I look at to resolve this issue for them.
Thank you in advance!
