Slow Logon

By dgrimes ·
Have just added a W2K Pro computer to a new Win 2003 server with AD, but this computer a very slow to logon to the domain. It takes 20 min+ just to connect (setting network connections) and another 20 min+ to logon (personal settings). This only occurs with this workstation, all other computers are XP Pro and are fast. This computer was replacing a Win98 computer and is used very little, but needed for special process. Once online, its seems to run fine.

I agree with answer #1. Check DNS. I recently had a user who changed DNS settings to manual on his laptop when he was trying to access the internet at a hotel. Hotel tech support had him change DNS servers to hotel's DNS. When he tried to logon to the work network, it took forever to logon.
