2008 TS Remote Apps - 60 second login
I have set up two terminal servers - one in a domain which is fully activated and licensed and one as a stand alone eval system for troubleshooting. I am not using web access - I am simply publishing RDP shortcuts. On both servers all remote apps have a 60 second login time. Once the user enters user & password it takes approx 60 seconds before the app actually runs. Clicking on the details button reveals that the first 10 seconds are very busy, at approx 10 seconds a message 'preparing your desktop' is displayed, after this just a blue desktop background is displayed for another 50 secs before the app actually appears. Subsequent logins for the same user are almost instant as the the session sits on the server.
I have searched the web and tried to troubleshoot but I am getting nowhere fast.
Has anybody come across this before and if so, is there anything I can do to reduce the login time? I am supposed to be rolling out a new system for a school but this 60 second login is going to kill it before its even off the ground.
Your thoughts and ideas on the above are very welcome.
