Windows 2003SBS Admin slow login

Hello there, using roaming profiles on the server for the users, not for any admin accounts (This has been double checked), however, the Administrator login on both remote login via RDC and as per login to client machines using Administrator takes forever to login, up to 30 mins sometimes.

Can anyone shed any light on this? Is this common?

The server runs all the normal applications of SBS, including some group policies for security and folder redirection, but none that I can see that would cause a slow login.

I have created a new admin account and set it in the administrator group and that now logs in slowly... any ideas?

It doens't sound likely as you're not reporting anything else, but double check your DNS settings. Sometimes having DNS wrong screws up local logins, but as noone else seems to have a problem it's not that likely.

An interesting log.

I'm thinking this may be a DNS issue.

---Snip---

Dynamic registration or deletion of one or more DNS records associated with DNS domain 'DomainDnsZones.xxx.local.' failed.  These records are used by other computers to locate this server as a domain controller (if the specified domain is an Active Directory domain) or as an LDAP server (if the specified domain is an application partition).  

Possible causes of failure include:  
- TCP/IP properties of the network connections of this computer contain wrong IP address(es) of the preferred and alternate DNS servers
- Specified preferred and alternate DNS servers are not running
- DNS server(s) primary for the records to be registered is not running
- Preferred or alternate DNS servers are configured with wrong root hints
- Parent DNS zone contains incorrect delegation to the child zone authoritative for the DNS records that failed registration  

USER ACTION  
Fix possible misconfiguration(s) specified above and initiate registration or deletion of the DNS records by running 'nltest.exe /dsregdns' from the command prompt or by restarting Net Logon service. Nltest.exe is available in the Microsoft Windows Server Resource Kit CD.

However I have tried to fix this, but to no avail... any suggestions?

Can you post the results of an ipconfig /all and a dcdiag (or at least any errors)

also the event ID of the mxrsmb error - though they happen all the time...

Finally figured out the problem. An issue with global policies for the Administrators group had files being copied over during login.

Thanks for your tips and comments for possible solutions, at least it's fixed now

(Sorry for the necro reply, the question is still open which I'm suprised at.)

Please avoid ignoring suggestions to close questions properly - the mods have every right to delete without refund questions that are not closed in accordance with the members agreement. It only makes it worse when you ignore someone telling you to close the question using the support area, and it doesn't make any difference if it was me or any other expert.
