  • Applying user settings

    When I log into my Active Directory Domain with my Administrator account it takes a very long time. First 30s on the "Welcome" screen, and after this 1min "Applying user settings".

    I have already tried some things like:
    - checking nameserver
    - checking roaming profiles (is disabled for the administrator account)
    - deleting logs in the event viewer

    Other ideas?

    Are you at the same site as your domain controller?

      Re: Applying user settings

      Does this affect other accounts as well?

      Does this account have any logon scripts configured that could be running slowly for some reason?

      Does this only occur when logging into a particular machine, or any machine?

      Is/are that/those machine/machines clients (including member servers) or DCs?

          So, how about some comprehensive information - what speed is the connection from your login point and what speed does the remote site have? Has it always been like this or did it work at an acceptable speed previously?

          Anything in the logs of the client/DC/server to indicate a cause?

            - There are no logon scripts;
            - It affects all the user accounts (also a clean fresh made user account);
            - It occures on any machine;
            - It takes the longest when I trie to log into the server (DC) remotely with my administrator account (1min30s)

                Sorry, I was not at the office the last couples of days.
                We've recently reboot the server and now the accounts log in as they should.
                Thanks anyway!
