Backup Exec 2010 R3 V3.1 taking too long after server is P2V'd

I am using Backup Exec 2010 R3 V3.1 to backup one server. It was a physical box and I was backing up to USB drives. Worked great. I then P2V'd the server so that it resides on an ESXi 5 host. The backups still work, but they take 24 hours. When the box was still physical it only took 4hours. Please advise. 

Thank you,

Have you tried to copy files (large & small) between your media server and the new VM to test network speed? If it was a branded server (like HP/Dell etc), did you remove all the manufacturer's hardware diagnostic software that might have been installed?

No I have not tried to copy files. I will try that out. It's an HP server I did not remove the manufacturer's diagnostic software. Is there something you wanted me to run?

Is the server now being backed up using the AVVI agent or via RAWS itself ?

And, in addition to above, do confirm if the the remote agent on the remote server is fully patched & upto date..
