There is one school that has a new 2008R2 server with SOLUS3 on it and the time SOLUS3 takes to transfer upgrade files to workstations is abysmal. For example, one workstation did not have the FMS upgrade as it was not part of the FMS Client channel. Once I added it, SOLUS3 immediately started transferring the upgrade file to the workstation to update it. The Native Client upgrade files took 10 minutes for SOLUS3 to copy across, BDE took about 10 minutes and the actual FMS Client upgrade took about 15 minutes to copy. Network utilisation is next to nothing and manually copying files from server to workstation in explorer is really quick (.NET 4 installer @ 50Mb took 2 seconds to copy).

Anyone else come across slow transfer times in SOLUS3?
