    Default mandatory profile is slow to logon - is this normal?

    I've found that when I create a mandatory profile for Windows 7 (by copying the default profile from the workstation - as supported by Microsoft), logging in with this profile takes about 1 minute 30 seconds. The two bits where it seems to pause for a while are 'Applying Folder Redirection' and 'Preparing Desktop'. The same delays occur when logging and building a letting a local profile build. If I make a profile by an unsupported method (i.e. log in with an account then using Windows Enabler to get a copy of the resulting profile) it only takes about 10 seconds to log in.

    Is it normal for the default mandatory profile from a Windows 7 install to take 1 minute 30 seconds to log in?

    Look through the event log to see exactly what stage of the process is causing the delay, it could be something to do with network conditions or permissions etc.

    No errors in the event log, everything looks normal and works with no problems. It's just slow to login.

    I've just noticed this

    Log Name: Application
    Source: ESENT
    Date: 19/06/2011 16:42:33
    Event ID: 220
    Task Category: Logging/Recovery

    User: N/A
    Computer: W7XSTEST.penrice.internal
    Description:

    Event Xml:

    Maybe this is doing it.

    That Windows Mail thing doesn't help but it shouldn't slow it down by that much. If you remove the stubpath value from the registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{44BBA840-CC51-11CF-AAFA-00AA00B6015C} it should stop that error appearing.

    Also what antivirus are you using?

    I think as part of the profile setup it generates about 12mb of mailbox data for the user, then initiates a backup of it which adds another 2mb. Overall the profile picks up about 20mb of data during the login.
    Thanks for the registry tip, I'll take a look.
    Antivirus is Microsoft Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010.

    The mandatory proflie is about 2, but when logging it it grows to 20. Most of it being down to the setup and backup of Windows mail.

    Take out Windows mail, use Outlook as a part of office and exchange server and profile won't grow to more than 5mb (ours hover at around 2.9mb fully loaded)

    Is the registry edit above the only way to get rid of it with automation? We use Google Apps so we don't need a local mail client.

    There's your problem....Google apps has a track record of grinding profiles to a halt. Half the businesses that use it switched to office 365 and its still only in beta!!!

    It's been three years and I wouldn't trade it in for anything else, Office 365 included :-)

    Fast logons and make iTunes and Quicktime disappear, then maybe we've got a deal.
