You encounter poor performance when you use the SMB 2.0 protocol to perform network-related operations, such as ADMT migration, on computers that are running Windows Server 2008 or Windows Vista

You encounter poor performance on a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 or Windows Vista when you perform network-related operations. These network-related operations include when you copy a shared file, move a shared file, or use the Active Directory Migration Tool (ADMT).

For example, the source or destination domain controller is running Windows Server 2008. In this example, an ADMT migration takes three times longer than a migration between two domain controllers that are running versions pre-Windows Server 2008.

In another example, both the source and destination domain controllers are running Windows Server 2008. In this example, an ADMT migration takes six times longer than a migration between two domain controllers that are both running versions pre-Windows Server 2008.
