How long is too long

Discussion in 'Windows Small Business Server' started by Mark McDonald, Aug 27, 2007.

  1. Hi there,

    I know that this has been mentioned a few times, but how long is too long
    for clients to logon to the network. I currently have a client that takes
    90-100 seconds to logon to the network. It just sits there with applying
    computer settings.

    I have done the following:

    Checked the dns on the client [it points to the server]
    Added static ip address and dns
    Updated the NIC drivers.

    None of the above seems to work, or am I just too impatient??

    Your help is appreciated.

  2. Hello Mark,

    Thank you for posting here. Let's thank Jim for the input.

    According to your description, I understand that it is long when you logon
    on client computer. If I have misunderstood the problem, please don't
    hesitate to let me know.

    Based on my research, I suggest we try the following steps to see if we can
    resolve this issue:

    To clean boot the problematic computer, please use the steps below:
    a. Click Start, click Run, and then in the Open box, type "MSCONFIG"
    (without the quotation marks). Click OK.

    b. In the System Configuration Utility (MSConfig) window, click to select
    the Selective Startup button.

    c. Click to clear the check mark from the "Load startup items" below
    Selective Startup.

    d. Click the Services tab, click to check the "Hide All Microsoft Services"
    box, and remove all the check marks from the remained Non-Microsoft
    Services.

    e. Click OK to close the MSConfig window. Click Yes when you are asked to
    restart your computer in order to enable the changes.

    f. After restarting, please check whether this issue will reoccur.

    g. If there are no more problems, please use the above steps to enable
    services and startup items one by one in order to figure out the root cause
    of this issue.

    If we cannot resolve the issue after we perform the above steps, please
    help me collect some information for further investigation:

    1. Does this issue happen on all client computers?

    2. Do you enable folder redirection or roaming profile for this user
    account?

    3. Please try to logon another computer with the problematic user account.
    Does the issue happen again?

    4. Please try to logon the problematic computer with another good user
    account. Does the issue happen again?

    5. Run command "ipconfig /all > c:\ipconfig_sbs.txt" and "route print >
    c:\route_sbs.txt" on SBS, send the files c:\ipconfig_sbs.txt and
    c:\route_sbs.txt to me at

    6. Run command "ipconfig /all > c:\ipconfig_client.txt" and "route print >
    c:\route_client.txt" on problematic client, send the files
    c:\ipconfig_client.txt and c:\route_client.txt to me at


    I hope these steps will give you some help.

    Thanks and have a nice day!

    Best regards,

    Terence Liu(MSFT)
