log in issue

i have 2 servers one with server 2003 and the other is server 2000 they are both on our domain, i can not figure out why it takes so long for the admin account to log on, it just sits on the sign saying applying your settings.  what would cause this issue.

Is it slow on both server? If they are not DC, make sure their Preferred DNS server is pointing to your DNS server and NOT your ISP's.

yes it is slow on both, the windwos 2003 server is a DC and the server 2000 is not, they are not porinting to our ISP DNS at all we use in house on a 10.1.1.xx scope.

no with the windows 2003 server when i log on as myself it is fast but with admin which is a domain admin takes at least 5 minutes, this account does not use a roaming profile, with windows 2000 server though the account takes up to an hour and also with users it does this as well

Do you get the same symptoms using both Kerberos and NTLM to login? (username@domain.com or DOMAIN\Username)
