Have a client that sent me this, so I can provide no details as of yet.  But thought some of you Guru's out there might want to throw some suggestions my way.    Will split the points for comments that seem worthy..  :)

===============

I am having a weird and annoying problem with my win2003 server. Whenever I click on active directory users and computers, I get a momentary hourglass and then nothing else - no ADUC screen or anything. Then, about 5 minutes later, the ADUC screen pops up as if nothing unusual had happened. It mostly works fine after that, but why the long delay to get to the main ADUC screen? Very occasionally, the ADUC screen loads almost instantaneously as it is supposed to, but it mostly makes me wait 5 or so minutes. The version of win2003 that is on my server is build 3790.srv03_rtm.030324-2048.

I need someone to tell me what's going on. I have 512 MB of memory.

================

Thanks,

FE

You probably have a DNS problem.  Check the event viewer for errors relating to DNS or NETLOGON.
