Slow Logins with Folder Redirection
From the Windows 7 Gotchas/Tips/FYI thread I've seen the Hotfix (You encounter a long logon time after you enable the "Do not automatically make redirected folders available offline" Group Policy setting in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2) that solves the issue we're having however I have a few questions.
For us, this is only causing a problem on our desktops, where the "Do not automatically make redirected folders available offline" setting is enabled.
However! It isn't happening on all of them or for all users.
On some machines users log in fine, then on the same machine with another user they'll have a slow login.
Should we roll this hotfix out to all desktops?
What has everyone else done?

Yup rolled it out to all client machines, along with a load of other ones (tcp/ip, dhcp, kernel, wmi, GPP, CSC etc). Huge improvements seen, and lots of 'background noise' from users about little problems just dropped right off.

I've also found (on a separate issue) the quality/age of network switch makes a big impact too. At one site, I upgraded HP 2324's and HP 2524's to HP 2910al's which made a noticeable difference. All these hotfixes will hopefully end up in Windows 7 SP2 due in 2013.
