Slow login to Domain (probable cause is DNS)
Posted on 2004-03-29
My users take 4-5 minutes to log into the server. From looking at previous questions, I have an idea of what may be wrong...
I have 2 questions:
1.) How do I make sure that my user's profiles are being stored locally? I browse to the profile tab of the user properties window, and local path is there, but empty. Does this just mean it will use the default, or is it still retrieving the profiles from the server?
2.) I have a firewall, and one machine set up as the domain controller. My firewall's DHCP hands out the DNS IPs that my ISP gave me (T1). This works fine, but in looking around, I saw that I may need to configure DNS on the domain controller or there will be long login times...
