Long logon times

by avi_mohod In reply to Long logon times

Hi,
Problem may be of two types.
1>During startup almost all services r being started.U have to go to control panel/services and disable the unwanted services.
2>It possible that during startup ur try to connect other server or logon validation is done by other server.Also it configured as DHCP client.This process takes some time.

Long logon times in Windows 2000 LAN are generally associated with:

1) Improperly configured DNS
2) Excessive group policies
3) Large roaming profiles

If you're not using DHCP check the DNS and IP configuration of your client. If you are using DHCP, ensure that the DNS service on the server is configured and operating properly. If the message being displayed during most of the wait is "Preparing Network Connections", then this is the most likely cause.

Group policy configuration can increase logon time dramatically, particularly when multiple policies are being applied. You will see the message "Applying Configuration" (or something similar) during this time.

If the message being displayed during the lag is "Loading Personal Settings" then you mave have a very large profile (or some very large files in your profile) that you're loading.

I hope this helps.
