Logon script works very slow

I wrote a small logon script in VBS. This script just evalutes in what site the user is and maps different network share according to the site information.

When I execute the script locally it works very good. When starting the script from a Domain GPO it works very slow (about 20sec per mapping).

Any ideas?

Have to tried to compare speed when processing gpo's asynchronously ? Or say with just one gpo applying to a user instead of several ?
-See, I think the problem is more related to the processing of gpo's themselves as opposed to the script.

The "no text" error often results when trying to paste code or formatted text directly, especially if it is large and exceeds 127 characters.  Engineering is looking into this problem.  Can you type in text directly, moellert?

Hi Housenet,

I think you are right. The script is not the problem. What is that thing with the "asynchronously processing"?

Have you also considered using Kixtart. This freeware loginscript program is freeware and very fast.
You can get more information on:
http://www.kixtart.org     and
http://www.kixtart.org/helpdesk

I'm using it for more than 3 years in a WAN environment without any speed problems.

Kixtart does not have the ability to query AD.
Am I wrong with that?

You're right, latest release 3.63 of Kixtart can not query AD as you can with VBS.
KixTart 2001 beta 2 however has functions called GetObject and CreateObject.
What exactly do you want to query ?

Hey moellert ,
-Open the domain policy..click edit... All the options are applied to machines or users...so open ADU&C ..right click properties of the domain name..Click the group policy tab & ...In administrative templates for computer configuration & user configuration->system->group policy there are several settings you can try out... Under the root of system there are some as well.. They each have explainations & should be pretty obvious in terms of effect. If none of the setting give you any significant performance imporvement you might simple want to hide the script from view... (Look especially for "apply login scripts asyncronously during startup in the computer configuration)...

-Overall I'd say, you want to minimize the amount of Gpo's you apply to a specific computer or user... 2 should be enough to cover almost any scenario... Domain->OU... If you've got 5 GPO's happening that need to be processed for each user or PC..that is a problem in of itself...too much overhead...

I already found the answer myself ong time ago and forgot this question here. Sorry but none of the comments helped me. I was the Novell network client and the binding order that slowed down everything.
This question could be closed without awarding points to anybody.
