Slow logon if I don't add the DNS server IP address in TCP/IP
Posted on 2004-08-05
We have a Windows 2003 server running DNS in our office. We can all log on quickly using obtain a DNS server automatically.
Our remote office also has a Windows 2003 server but it does not have DNS activated. If clients log on using obtain a DNS server address automatically then it can take up to several minutes for them to log on. Ipconfig /all shows the correct DNS server address once they log on.
If they put in the DNS server IP address in TCP/IP then they can log on right away.
Do you have any suggestions on why obtain a DNS server address is so slow for them?
