    You said everything was ok before the new switch didn't you so your DNS should be ok if it hasn't changed.

    Is it server 2003?

    How to configure DNS for Internet access in Windows Server 2003
    yea 2003....

    got to sort something else now...will be back on this tomorrow, by which hopefully the switch guy will have been in touch....

    cheers for your help....

    I would start looking at possible duplex mismatch / driver settings & driver versions / also firmware on the switches if DNS is ok.
    Although the 457 errors I would not like......

    DCDiag is pointing out that there are errors in the event log probably 1054 errors which are common in this sort of situation.

    OK, back on the case this morning...

    Did a server ping test to a client that's having this issue.
    Watched PC boot up....

    Preparing network connections.... around 30 seconds.
    applying computer settings.... flashes briefly
    CTRL+ALT+DEL...appears...

    around 10 seconds after that the server successfully pings the workstation....

    is this normal?

    That sounds on the slow side to me, I'll take a look at one of mine but it usually starts pinging during the preparing network connections part which takes about 5 seconds on our system.

    EDIT

    Yep as I said above it starts pinging at the preparing network connections stage and that take a few seconds, as soon as the logon box appears I can logon. It definatly sounds like your switch ports aren't switching to forwarding mode quickly enough.

    ALL FIXED.

    Solution was:

    New 3com edge switches had been left with "Spanning Tree" enabled on the UTP ports.
    Once we disabled this everything started working as it should.

    Thought so that's exactly the issue we had with our planet switches.
