Active Directory slow to pull list.

By david ·
We ran the NT4 domain to W2k migration in our lab. We now have a w2k DC, NT4 BDC, and a w2k DNS server in our lab running mixed mode. We also now have 1800 AD objects. The problem is it takes forever to build that list when we want to do simple things like add a user for delegation or add a user for a NTFS permision. Is there a way to have this information cached so the list in the Add users, groups and computers window builds quicker.

This isn't just a problem with AD with fairly large numbers of users. I've got a test bed with AD with about 10 users on it, and the same thing was happening. Have you tried installing Service pack 1 for Win2K - I found that this greatly increased the speed of the tools (most of the slow downs are bugs and some of them are fixed in the SP).
