Very long log on times win2k server

By MLessard ·

I have just installed a new network including a win2k server and 15 win2k work stations.

Question, What is the normal log on time for connection to the server domain?

Back ground: Win2k server clean install SP1, on P3 800 512Mg P133 ram, 1-20 gig ata100 boot drive and a 3 drive raid 5 ata100 software raid. I used all the defaults from the install- including terminal server and active directory. I also set up roaming profiles as well (I have disabled then to no change). All win2k pro installs are also clean w/SP1. Network is a switched 100tx ethernet network. I see very little network activity when the workstations are "loading personal setting" and "applying personal setting" It takes about 5-6 minutes to log on to the demain, way to long compared to NT4.

If the user logs on locally its instantly connected.

Any help would be apreciated,

Mark- newbie

What kind of NICs are you using? After waiting 3 years to log in, what is your network access like? files, proxy, etc.?
are you using DHCP? or static IP's? do you have netbeui installed on all of the workstations? have you went into your switch to check the stats in there? may have a port problem...
