    Hello all,

    The problem is that all my clients (windows xp sp3) have a slow access when
    they log on to the domain controller. When they log off and log back in then
    the access is fast. So only when they start there Pc and log on for the first
    time access is slow.

    I use a kix script for all my clients, now sometimes the kix script doesn't
    load fully.
    when I log off and log on again, the problem is solved.

    There are no events in my event viewer!

    Any kind of information would be great.

  2. Hello mvdv,

    Very often DNS is the problem, make sure to use only domain internal DNS
    server ip's on the NIC, no external from your ISP's DNS.

    Best regards

    Hello Meinolf,

    Thx for your reply.

    Every client has got the local ip adresses of 2 domain controllers.
    The external ISP's DNS adresses are on the domain controllers (forwarders).

    Any other suggestions!

    Best regards.

  4. Hello mvdv,

    Do you have enabled "Always wait for the network at computer startup and
    logon" under Computer configuration, administrative templates, System, Logon?
    Because XP is visbily up and running but network comes really late.

    Best regards

  6. Hello mvdv,

    Enable the policy and run gpupdate /force, reboot or wait up to 90 minutes
    before the new setting is applied.

    Hello Meinolf,

    Did not solve the problem.
    But yesterday I configured 1 new workstation on our domain, the logon speed
    is good. How could it be that existing workstations are slow.
    Workstations are 1 year old, only locale profile, not many policies.

    Beste regards.

  11. Hello mvdv,

    This looks fine. All computers are registered correctly in the DNS zone?
    Do you have also a Reverse lookup zone configured? All network card drivers
    are up to date on the problem machines?

    Best regards
