Trouble installing apps over network

We've got an ML150 G6 running Server 2008 R2, and clients running Windows 7 Pro 32-bit.

We are trying to install some apps from the server, and are encountering issues like incomplete or botched installs, updates that take hours, or unresponsiveness to launches.

Are there any Ethernet or otherwise network-related diagnostics we can use to narrow down the cause of these issues?

Re: Trouble installing apps over network

There's TCPView

Also if you combine with Robocopy - just to check the performance of copying a large file from server to client for example.

Just a thought; Antivirus can play a part if it does realtime scanning of files both at the server and the client.

Also you could check the network's MTU via
ping -f -l

-f = do not fragment
-l = size of network packet

There's also a free tool called Iperf for measuring TCP/UDP performance. http://omasse.blogspot.com/2010/12/iperf-205-for-windows.html
