I contacted business support and the answer was to run this command.
sadmin features disable discover-updaters
I tried it and it now works as expected.
What are the consequences of leaving the "discover updaters" feature disabled?

Discover-updater feature is used to retrieve a list of potential updaters that can be included in system. While transfering files over network this feature tracks each file operation to find possible updaters thus causing delay.
