  • Long time users logon

    Hi,
    I have this problem:
    In school network we have server with Windows Server 2003 and workstations Windows XP Professional. Students have roaming profiles and they have deny access to local system disk C:.
    And now.

    When they are loging in and it takes somethig about 5 minutes until they are loged in and can start to work.

    If I allow access to local system disk C:, it takes somethig about 1 minute, but its still too long.

    What I have to do to make loging in faster (several seconds)?
    THX.

    99% of the time I see this problem it's down to the Clients DNS settings.

    Ensure that they are set correctly and are pointing towards your internal DNS server.

      In addition to Toppers comment: what _exactly_ do you mean here? Deny what (read/write/?) on which part (root/all/?)?

      At the very least the user should have access to his local profile folder, and read access to the rest.

      One minute is quite a lot, but not completely impossible if you have complex policies. I tend to agree with Topper though, DNS is much more likely.
