Recently converted DBs open very slowly

Your post

I have recently converted our 5.5 server (and DBs) to 10.0 we are running FMP10 clients and when opening one of our larger DBs it takes quite a while to open and then it takes a long time after that to open the related DBs.  The DBs opened quickly in 5.5, so I was wondering if there isn't something additional I might need to do to the DBs to get the to perform better in v10?  I was thinking that it may be because a lot of our users are still on XP, but I installed it on Win7 and still hhave the same problem.  I even installed a FMP11 client (trial version) to see if it was a client problem, but the DBs still open really slow.

They are hosted on a Win2k3 server over a LAN.  I believe that the issue is with the DB itself, but what I want to know is that if there isn;t some additonal optimization that I may need to do to them.  If so, what is it and where do I find instructions?
