  • too much time for preparing network connections

    I am using win03 as DC.but I have a problem and that's : when I turn on Computer and the OS loads,it takes too much time for me to able to logon.most of this delay occur when "preparing for network connections" dialog Procedure is shown to me -something about 3-4 mins- Is there anyway to reduce this ("preparing for network connections" ) time.

    - Either the machine running Xp\2000 is really old and needs updating.

    or (the more likely)

    - You have an incorrect DNS setup, the delay is in finding and quering a valid DNS server for the domain the PC is part of.

      This usually points to a DNS problem.

      If it's your server ensure that it points to itself for DNS resolution.

      If its a client machine ensure it points to your primary DNS server for resolution.

          Look at the network properties or just type nslookup at a cmd prompt.

          topper.

            Check you network properties.

            Probably the easieast way is to do an ipconfig /all from a DOS box.

            What you will be looking for is your primary DNS IP to match the system IP.

            Usually the first DNS Server listed is the primary.

            You can also check the properties using the connect to option and selecting "Show all Connections" then selecting the correct card and right clicking and selecting properties. Choose TCP/IP and select properties.

              Hi

              As said above, ensure your DNS server doesn't point to an internet DNS service (eg: your ISP's DNS servers) in it's TCP/IP settings under Network Connections. It needs to point to itself.

              And the client machine, it needs to point to the DNS server on the LAN, not the internet.

              You're best off setting these options in the DHCP server so all clients come on to the network with the same settings.

              Also, ensure if the clients are set to obtain an IP from DHCP, that there is a DHCP server on your network running properly too... these delays (time-outs) can also come from when the client is trying to request an IP from a DHCP server that's not activated/installed correctly.

              Let us know how you get on...
              1 + 1 = 11 ... honest!

                I have installed DNS on my DC.I have configured my NIC which connects to switch Manually like other clients.
                cause this server is the only DNS in my Intranet I have only set this
                server IP (suppose Class C -192.168.0.1-) as primary DNS server.
                I do notHave any Problem with my clients.they are OK.
                The only problem is server.I have not enabled DHCP in this zone since
                it does not have any usage for my purpose.
                and my last question is that:

                stoo.mp :

                would you please do favor on more comments to check your quoto:
                "It needs to point to itself."

                  OK.

                  Does your server have anything else runnig on it like for example Exchange Server??

                  Really not recommended to have exchange on the same server as a DC.
