why logon process on a domain is slow? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've a lab of 20 computers only and we've one server and all computers are connected to this server and they everybody logs on to that domain, everything is working fine but only one thing is so annoying that when we give username and password and press logon button all clients take may be more then 60 sec. to log-in, it's so annoying they take too much time to take us into the working environment or desktop although we are using (fast Ethernet technology switch), what could be the possible reason and how we can make it fast?

  • Hello,

    I have seen extermely long logons on Domain networks; and most of the time it is due to the local workstation not having the correct DNS setting or not being able to contact the DNS server on the Domain controller. I have seen it where DCHP was giving the wrong DNS server IP address to workstations, Windows Firewall rules incorrectly executing or configured wrong etc...

    It could be something more in depth; the DNS server configured on the Domain controller is having communication issues? Check Event Viewer for errors.

    Disable secondary NIC's in Bios if not in use.

    Review server name resolution using s FQDN fully qualified domain name and see if you can ping the server from your workstation.

    Example: Ping Myservername.MyDomaibname.local or .com
