    Strange logging on issue

    Situation:
    A new PC has been imaged like all the other computers before and now adding it to the network, not normally any problems. This time after adding it to the domain and rebooting and logging on then shutting it down (no problems so far), I move the computer account as usual into the one which has the Global Desktop OU on the server. Start the PC and log on, no problems apart from after log on there is no global desktop. The usual fix for this has been to do a gpupdate /boot on the client PC, reboot and logon and the desktop works as required. However this time it has taken a good 5-10mins for the logon prompt to appear after waiting at the Running scripts message before the logon screen. All seems to be working but wondered why the long wait? Usually does it straight away.

    Which OS? Can we see your script? Have you checked the event logs on the machine in question for any clues?

    Did have a look at Gpresult and it looked fine and the scripts are fine as they run everywhere else no problem. Its just this machine that seems to just take ages to get past start up scripts befor ethe logon prompt. Done it again this morning. Just looking at event logs and cant see anything obvious.

    Dodgy NIC? Or is the port on the switch it's connect to configured incorrectly/differently to the ones working OK?

    Computer to chair interface error once again I'm afraid. Trying to do too many jobs quickly! It was a simple case of forgetting I had not done a Newsid on the PC from when I imaged it, to when I got around to set it up on the network. Once I ran NewSid, rebooted re-joined to network etc etc all was fine. Thanks for the suggestions anyway.
