I'll bet Computer B runs W98 or 95, doesn't it?

We've all experienced this-can't seem to find a fix.

What protocols are bound to the network cards?

TCP/IP (with file sharing helper protocol) seems to have that problem.
NetBEUI either by itself or with TCP/IP seems to work much faster.


1. File share failover takes 30 seconds?

I've just installed a Compaq CL380 machine, both nodes running Win2KAS
SP1 configured for failover. With the Cluster Administrator I've
configured a fileshare with all default settings.

When I run a test starting a copy of a large number of files, say the c:
\winnt directory to the cluster, and I stop the cluster service on the
active node, failover takes at least 30 seconds. Is this behaviour
normal? I would really like to decrease this time so that end user
wouldn't get any error messages. I know that you can manually specify a
different time setting but in my case that didn't seem to work.

I would really like to know if anybody else is having better luck with
