    Hi
    I installed Domain controller on my Windows 2003 R2 machine.
    Added other win2k3r2 and winxp machines. now i try to logon on these pc -
    it takes about 3-4 minutes to apply local settings! :( Maybe some
    parameters shoudl be changed to keep this time "normal" short?

  3. Slow logons are DNS problems. Like Irwin says, you should have your domain
    members pointing to an internal DNS server that is authorative for your AD
    namespace. In many installations, this is the DCs themseleves.

    Only use the internal DNS servers on the client NIC DNS configuration, and
    your internal DNS servers should handle both internal resolution and
    Public(Internet) resolution, to configure the internal DNS for public
    resolution check:
