Slow execution of FindAttributesPath in Windows Server 2012

I have the following code to get attributes values from AF Servers:


using OSIsoft.AF.Asset;

using System;


namespace CmdConexaoAF


    class Program


        static void Main(string[] args)


            Console.WriteLine(string.Format("{0} {1}", DateTime.Now, "Start FindAttributesByPath..."));

            var attributes = AFAttribute.FindAttributesByPath(

                new string[] { "\\\\AFSERVER\\DATABASE\\ROOT\\ELEMENT|ATTRIBUTE" },


            Console.WriteLine(string.Format("{0} {1}", DateTime.Now, "Finish FindAttributesByPath..."));


            Console.WriteLine(string.Format("{0} {1}", DateTime.Now, "Start GetValue..."));

            var attributesValues = new AFAttributeList(attributes).GetValue();

            Console.WriteLine(string.Format("{0} {1}", DateTime.Now, "Finish GetValue..."));


            foreach (var attributeValue in attributesValues)


                Console.WriteLine(string.Format("{0} = {1}", attributeValue.Attribute.GetPath(), attributeValue.ToString()));








This code is part of a MVC4 application. I focus in the essence of the code to show my problem...


I need to execute using the attribute path, because I could need to find in the same execution attributes from diferents elements, databases and servers.


When I execute in the developer machine, the execution is normal. This code runs in 1 second.


But when I run in the Windows Server 2012 the result is as following:

The find paths spends one minute to execute!


I tested the name resolution from DNS and I didn't find any problem.


If someone has another ideias about how to solve this problem I'll thank!
