Login time for classrooms
We've been battling (as many have) with long login times in our PC classrooms for years. We have finally managed to get things down to about 2-2.5 minutes, but have hit a roadblock trying to get things down any further.
Glorious stories abound about sub-20-second logins. Our faculty have apparently heard this as well and are insistent that we attain this holy grail. Would folks be willing to share their average login time for public labs and perhaps some high-level information as to what was done to attain it? I need to present some benchmarks to management on what other schools experience so we can establish what "normal" is.
We have a Win 2008/2003 R2 domain and Windows 7 clients. We map only a couple of DFS drives, have a total of three GPO's and map printers via a VB script in the startup folder. We establish the default profile pre-imaging the lab machines and ensure the user profile is wiped on logout. Only folder redirection is for mydocs.
