WINDOWS 2000 DOMAIN LOGON TAKING A LONG TIME
Posted on 2004-03-24
I have a win2k environment with 10 workstations and 1 server.
The server is loaded with win2k advance server. It is a Dell Dimension P4 2.4ghz with 512MB RDRAM and it's the PDC for the domain.
The workstations are Dell Optiplexes with PIII 733 and 256MB PC100 RAM loaded with win2k pro.
Everything is in one medium sized office and if I transfer files they move across the network at an acceptable speed.
When I have users log in with their domain account, it takes a while (like 3 - 5 minutes) whereas when they log in with their local computer accounts, it's in an instant.
I've tried adding more RAM but this doesn't help the situation.
I know there's a way to speed this up but I'm not sure what that is.
Can someone help??
