I have a slight problem with a win 2003 server, the problem is simple the solution well.... i cant find one. The problem is when you first press crtl-alt-del to log on and of course logon with admin and password the server hangs for anywhere from 20 min to 60 mins applying computer settings until it logons on and the desktop appears. very very frustrating and annoying when you need to logon to check things, the same delay also occurrs using remote desktop. Does any one have any ideas how to fix this problem? its a 2003 svr enterprise edition with SATA raid array 2 gig ram and dual xeons. running a small network using AD connected to a broadband ADSL Netcomm router

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Don’t know how much help this will be: I have seen similar issues with WinXP SP2 if Sygate perswonal firewall is installed. Do you have a host-based firewall or IDS/IPS? If so, try disabling it/them and see if that resolves the issue…

    Is this the 1st domain controller in a forest? If so, add the DNS role. We had similiar problems initially and they were all related to DNS and time-outs.

    Hello, First thing I'd look at is DNS and follow King Conan's advice. If that fails to resolve, check your GP settings for the local machine and domain. If you have a large number of indivdual policies this will slow your logon as GP has to check each policy before applying it. Good Luck!

    Use the 'dcdiag' and 'netdiag' commands to diagnose. These are available when you install AdminPak.msi from the CD. Whatever problems you have in your infrastructure are likely to turn up there.

    Hi, Have you check the EventLog? That will give you the most possible reason of server activity during the login period. Regards,
