prepositioning not transfering all data, hanging CIFS 4.1.1b

I have setup prepostioning to download video files on a nightly basis to my 18 remote sites. because of the WAN setup I create 6 preposition directives with 3 sites in each directive, arranged to start an hour apart. Anyway i find that the majority of the preposioning will hang when there is 100MBytes + to send

and I have to delete and recreate the directive and rerun a couple of times for the transfer to complete. It seems the slower the link the more times i have to run it to complete.

Anybody having similar problems, or any ideas how to fix?

below is the CLI of a typical preposition directive

accelerator cifs preposition 1272944

name "Video5"

server ""

root "DMS/"

credentials username DMS password 1 ssencrypt{361634916a147e8dc2b623f2ad114a8
