Windows XP hangs at applying computer settings

We just installed a new RWDC to replace an old RODC. We powered off the RODC to test the new DC. However as we have not yet demoted the old RODC XP users report that clients use a long time at "applying computer settings". Typically 20-60 sec. Will this dissapear when demoting the RODC or is something else causing the clients to hang at logon?

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

Windows will look for the DC it has been using first. You turned that one off, so it needs to search for another to authenticate against. If you hae give the DC’s enough time to fully replicate, there would normally be a short delay in finding the new DC, but it should not be long. The extra time can be attributed, I believe, to missing information that had not yet been replicated. Turn up the original DC again, and you wil likely get the same delay until everything has been fully replicated.
