Loading network settings for 2 mins on logon following win2000 domain upgrade
Posted on 2004-10-22
Our network is all NT4 servers / win2000 clients and we have added a new server as NT4 BDC and promoted to PDC, installed win2000 server and active directory with default settings. Now when trying to logon on windows 2000 pro client to network, user is authenticated and box displays 'loading your personal settings' for 2 mins before logging on and all is fine once logged on. I have configured DHCP to update DNS when client logs on etc but clients dont seem to be registering in DNS at all. When logging onto a win NT4 workstation, logs on fine as this is using WINS. Tried a test win2000 pro client PC with test user without login script or profile and this has the same problem. DNS seems to be working as can ping any PC via host name. DNS is configured as default by installation and is installed on PDC that was upgraded to Win 2K.
Can you please help to solve this annoying problem?????
