Laptop Takes Long Time To Complete Login After Shutdown
Posted on 2006-05-02
Here is the scenario:
Win Server 2003, LAN, Users.
Win XP installed on Laptop, which has built in wireless. Installed and updated and joined domain thru LAN cable connection.
So far, so good.
Log in as user A with LAN cable connected. Works ok. WIndows does sync when log out performed.
Log back in this time using the wireless connection. Takes forever to do the login in.
When done, works fine.
Log out and log back in. Log in instantaneous.
Power down laptop.
Boot up and log in as User A to domain again. Takes 5-10 minutes and finally connects to domain and login successful.
Log out and back in and instantaneous.
Every time it is powered down, the login to the domain takes 5-10 minutes, but all successive logins seem to be instantaneous.
Happens for every domain user on the laptop.
Here is what I did.....
unregistered laptop from the domain. Powered down.
deleted all DNS and DHCP entries for laptop. Deleted laptop entry in the AD.
powered up, logged on as local admin and joined the domain.
cable was connected.
booted. logged in as domain user with cable connected. Login instantaneous. Log out and sync process ran.
Tried same thing with different user...same behavior.
Logged on as user A, with LAN cable disconnected so wireless would be used. Took 5-10 minutes to connect to the domain.
Same with user B.
This behavior seems pretty strange. Can some one help. Please advise. Thanks.
