    I've brought up a brand new Active Directory Domain using Server 2003 and
    it's unusable. These are default installs just to get things up and running.

    Don't know what the problem is but here are the symptons:

    1) It takes about 4-6 minutes to login to a client using a domain account
    2) Clients don't recognize the domain in situations such as assinging NTFS
    permissions. For example, if I right click on a folder and want to assign
    full control to a domain user, it will not list the domain as a choice of
    where to look foir users, only the local machine. Yet, in the sme control
    panel, the account "Domain\Administrator" is listed as having full control.

    Anyone have any ideas why I can join a client to the domain but then have
    this agonizing login and limited ability to assign persmissions or recognize
    domain users within the clients' permissions system?

    Need more information. Parse through your Event logs for errors. Also, run
    DCDIAG to ensure that the DCPROMO Process completed all tasks associated with
    AD install. Check your DNS settings to ensure that DNS is functioning
    properly (most likely cause) and check for errors on DNS. Follow this link
    for troubleshooting tips and post back:

    Thanks for your quick reply. I looked at the logs and some other posts
    around this site and it does seem like DNS is to blame.

    I'm going to see what I can do about getting DNS setup correctly. I'll post
    again here with results.

    Thanks Again
