Having slow logons to the network - loading personal settings for over 5 minutes.
We have opened a new site (B) and transferred all the servers there. The network works fine in site B however we had the same problem until I set-up the primary DNS settings correctly.
Site A has had a new server installed with Win2k3 R2 and is a DNS/WINS/DHCP server like the one in site B.
I have set-up the Site A PCs (XP pro) TCP/IP PC settings to point to the new DNS server (DC) in SiteA however this is still slow. The Admin account takes a few minutes to logon. I can logon remotely from SiteA to the DC in SiteB and logs on quickly as it should do.
Is this possibly a DNS or GPO problem or something else?
