Hi all:

I'm the mac admin for an otherwise all PC environment. I recently upgraded most of the machines in the office from 10.4 G5s to Mac Pros with 10.6.4 pre-installed, using the Migration Assistant. The users work almost entirely off of SMB shares, which are run directly off of a NAS served up by multiple 1GB trunked Ethernet ports hosted on 15K RPM SCSI Drives.

Ever since I did the upgrade, some of the machines are noticeable slower than others when accessing anything on the SMB shares, whether it's just copying files (which slows to under ~500K/per second or less) or opening up medium-sized, 100 MB graphic/inDesign files (which takes a looong time - sometimes up to five minutes). Not all users report the problem, but I've noticed it both on these office computers and on Mac laptops brought in from outside this particular environment (i.e. my laptop, which doesn't live here or use any of the software these users use).

PC users don't have similar issues (that i know of - I don't have a lot of communication with them) and nobody with a G5 has complained. It's hard for me to tell exactly what the origin of this problem is, but where would you all recommend I start? The system.log doesn't show much in the way of SMB errors.
