I don’t know of a specific setting, but there are a couple of things that you should check. First, verify that the server is pointed to the correct DNS server, and that it is able to communicate with your global catalog server. You might also run some latency tests on the server. I have seen situations in which the console appears to be blank, and then later on the information just shows up. Slow server performance, low bandwidth, or even a bad network cable that produces an excessive number of retries can cause this problem.
