    Office 2011 and network logins

    Hi,
    We have a suite of macbooks which log in to our domain via a macserver onto our AD, using network logins. This works fine, desktop and documents are redirected to the 2008 R2 server very nicely thank you, and dock settings are managed via workgroup manager on the macserver. The problem is, when Word 2011 is kicked off, it takes nearly 5 minutes to load up the configuration files. It doesn't help that their access point is a 20 wireless router, I know, but testing the server read/write speed on a PC gives pretty high throughput from LanSpeedTest. Is there any way in Workgroup manager to specify a local path for the preferences files in word 2011?

    Is it only Word giving you the issue? From memory the configuration files are in the 'Microsoft User Data" folder which I believe is stored in the documents folder, so it will have to retrieve that from your server. Do you get the same problems when wired in?

    Well it's much quicker to load when wired in, but i'm guessing that's cos the transfer speed is that much higher. TBH, we've got an aruba AP in our main school, which is far quicker than the AP in the mac suite. I'm going to see what sort of load times I get when I hang one of the machines off that. Should've tried that before posting! D'oh! Will report back with developments.
