Slow Login after Service Pack 1 install

Hey Everyone,

I'm not sure if by installing SP1 on SBS2003 would have caused this problem but it started happening after I installed it.

Here it is:

When a user logins to any of there pc's, everything works fine, when they sign onto to our app server which is run by terminal services on a W2k server box it takes forever to login and run my kix script. Like I mentioned before, this was not a problem prior to installing SP1 on the sbs2003 server.

In the SP1 install is there something that changed that would affect people logging in remotely to a windows 2000 server box?

http://www.smallbizserver.net/Default.aspx?tabid=266&articleType=ArticleView&articleId=68 is an excellent overview of the whole SBS Service Pack 1 install (this part isn't an answer to your Q.).

The only issue I've experienced which relates to SP1 is the following issue: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/898060 - despite it being old, it has been experienced on more than one site I'm aware of.

Thanks for your quick response,
I just figured out that the reason my script was hanging was b/c of a bad printer driver.
I noticed that everytime the script would run it would get stuck at connecting to printers.
I looked at the print spooler and noticed that it had stopped. I started it again and finally got down to the driver that was giving me the problems. A lexmark 6100 series driver. (STAY AWAY FROM THAT THING) at least on a network that is.

I will keep the information you gave me as I just installed SP1 on this box anyway and I might need it in the future.

thanks again
