Slow connecting to Citrix server

By brian ·
We are running Metaframe 1.8 for Win2K on an HP LC2000 as well as a Dell PowerEdge 2400. The two servers are configured as a "farm". We run primarily one app from these servers. When we attempt to launch that app from a client, it can take up to a minute to start the program. A fair portion of that time is the Win2k "Loading Personalized Settings". It seems to hang on that screen much longer than it should. I don't recall the exact spec's of these servers but I can tell you that they are at least P-III 766's with 512MB RAM each.

Slow connecting to Citrix server

Brian I do no have an answer for you now but I can tell you that I am expereincing the exact same symptoms. The apps runs great after the initial logon but the logon itself can take up to a minute which feels like forever. When I find an answer I will let you know. Please do the same with me. Thanks!

Check to make sure that these particular users do not have gigantic roaming profiles due to files stored on the desktop or elsewhere in their profiles. This could be doing it.

Good luck.

We don't use roaming profiles at all.

Are you using a large of amount of security profiles? Does the TS user utilize a profile that is located on the TS servers or are they using one that is stored local to themselves?

Even the Administrator account takes a long time. We don't use roaming profiles at all.

I'm not familiar with the HP system, but do suspect that you may find that the logon time can significantly be reduced (on the Dell) if you eliminate some of the Dell software loading with each client logon.
