startup and logon scripts cause long delays on offline computers

    Dear all, I have VB startup and logon scripts defined in a GPO. When a mobile
    computer is booted offline, apart from getting the event log entries
    described in article 840669 (events 1054 and 1000), the PCs apparently hang
    fpr several minutes until the GPO times out. Since the PCs first start with a
    network connection (to the internet, but not to a DC), and a channel to the
    DC will not be available until th euser has logged on and started his VPN
    client, simply increasing the GPO timeout value will probably nothelp - what
    I am looking into is to shorten the GPO timeout or to disable the scripts
    altogether if no DC is available.
    Am I on the right track?
