hi - i've just added two new computers to my 2003 server - everything is working fine except that they take at least 5 to 10 minutes to log off - the strange thing is if I use the old computer (pentium 2!) logs off immediately using the same login as the new computer - it seems to also happen using RDP - help please :)
Is it something to do with syncing offline files?

It could be offline files (temporarily disable offline files to see) or it could be automatic updates still running. ... Thinkpads_User

Hi,

Open the task manager before logging off and check which process is taking CPU and memory.

i'll revise the question a bit it's actually more a problem with rdp - log off hangs for up to 10 minutes - but just on the 2 brand new hp computers - with the old machine and the exact rdp login details it logs off immediately - weird?

it ended up being the printer option in the rdp settings - took the tick out and all is well - thanks :)
