    Help in Speeding Logon On and Log Off Process

    Hi guys,

    Just a quick post to see if I can get any ideas in how to speed up our Logon On and Logoff process here at work. At the moment when anyone logs in it takes like 10 minutes before anyone can use the computers, as the computer will sit there Applying Computer Settings for at least 10 minute, and the same for when logging off. Any ideas anyone? We are still running on Windows 2003 and XP for client machines. The main AC controller is pretty old, so I don't know whether that is part of the problems, and there's other 2 servers equally as old acting as back up AD servers and load balancing.

    Thanks for any help.

    If I remember correctly, 10 minutes is the timeout period for startup/logon scripts - you may be trying to run a script that can't be found, or is looping ?
    Turning on Verbose logging in group policy will also help identify the delay - find it in computer config, admin templates, system.

    Oh I see. Will check the scripts and see what they are trying to pull, as I've inherited the scripts already on the network.

    Use this tool to look at which policy is taking ages to apply

    SysPro Software -> Policy Reporter

    Hi guys, thanks for the advices. I've done soem more digging in the eventlog and with Policy Reportr, and it's not looking good. I think the main problem is with the AD server, as in even viewer, there where loads of errors were the computer can't find the domain or the AD server. However, user's do manage to log in, eventually, after 5 or 10 minutes. The Network Manager is looking at changing over to a new built domain on new servers, but he told me in the meantime to see if I could figure out how to speed things up for now. Also, I found other SCECLI 1202 Events in the logs.
