Just go through everything looking for anything unusual.
    Thanks.... I think I've checked that out and I can't spot anything too odd. I will have to fiddle around with different policies - I have a niggling feeling that folder redirection is holding it all up. It feels the need to write an event log everytime it does it (correctly) so it must be feeling proud about itself for something!

    Remove ranger!!!
    Are you using roaming profiles?

    We had this same problem. I stopped using roaming profiles (after realising they weren't needed anyway) and literally overnight the problem disappeared 8) .

    I did a lot of research (on the net, peoples experiences etc) on RP's before ditching them and found most people seem to have had problems with them! getting rid of them was one of the best things I ever did!

    @free: Your slow logon my be down to the way Ranger messes with the logons. When I used it last it wasn't very efficient. Does a non-rangered user still experience the slow logon?

    Re: Logon Times/Speed

    There is a known problem with Folder Redirection on Windows Server 2003 with XP clients

    Link to Microsoft KB Article

    I will attch the 2 patch files that microsoft provide. One is for the server and the other is for the workstations.

    I have also included a video that someone made about the difference it made to his logon time.

    Hope this helps

    Windows 2000 servers (3 domain servers and 6 other servers)
    Windows XP SP1 clients
    P4 2.4, 2.8, 3.0, 3.2GHz mixture
    512MB ram

    Mandatory profiles (about 1mb in size)

    logon speed from hitting enter to full usable desktop = about 5-10 seconds depending on PC.

    Most notieable speed advantage on windows XP if you are updated comes from disabling the WebClient service.

    Re: Logon Times/Speed

    Hi

    I think your scripting structure is brilliant!

    I have been trying to implement but I come across the following problems:

    1. The computer hangs on "Running Logoff Scripts..." when logging off
    2. The Delprof.exe program is not asking for a prompt even after I put the switch /y into the script.

    The script I am using is:

    NET USE K: \\homer\batch\netlogon
    NET USE W: \\homer\batch\Desktop
    k:\Delprof.exe /y /q
    rd /s /q "c:\documents and settings\Default User"
    xcopy /i /y /h /e w:\Profiles\*.* "c:\documents and settings\Default User"
    net use /delete * /y


    Any ideas?

    Re: Logon Times/Speed

    You should only need the /q switch.
