I have ESXi and a backup server, both has disks conneted via RAID addapter (so they suppose to be more or less fast) and they both connected to a 1G network
The problem is that I want to export something from ESXi or just download a file from there or to put some file from the backup server to it the speed is very very slow. When for example I try to export a 10GB VM it can take an hour or even more and my network swos that they use no more then 2-3% of the 1G
Any ideas what is the problem ?
Just a thought, maybe you can tweak the Link Speed on your nics to use Full Duplex instead of Auto Detect. Also, have you tried file moves between other servers to the ESXi server and Backup Server to see who is slowing things down? Can you verify the Network Settings on both servers specifically the Default Gateway? I did an oops before on one of our servers and it was still able to find things on the network but was extremely slow.
