    Hello All,

    Sorry for the repost, but I did not want to add to the original post as it
    was getting long.

    Meinolf, I modified the "NAC" policy and enabled the the following as you
    suggested and still some of the same users are experiencing a 3 - 5 minute
    delay (the messages is "Applying Security Settings::
    "Have you enabled the following GPO setting on the OU where the computers
    are located:
    Computer configuration, Administrative templates, system, logon, in the right
    pane enable "Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon " .

    One question I have is does it matter what order the policies run? The
    policy runs in this order (1) Default Domain Policy. (2) NAC policy

    Do I need to change the order this policy runs?

    I'm positive the DNS is good. This is not causing an issue network wide,
    only a few users. I know it has something to do with the Login script and
    the Group Policy.

    Any additional thoughts would be appreciated.

  2. Hello Zoey,

    The policy must be linked to an OU where the computers are located, you shouldn't
    alter the defaul domain policy or the default domain controllers policy,
    create your own ones and link them to the needed level.

    To really exclude DNS please post an unedited ipconfig /all from the DC/DNS
    and a problem client.

    Best regards
