RDP session taking very long to login

On a 2003 server from a server local, I RDP connect and after logging in, the session takes very long (like 3 minutes) to complete the login. There are no GPO policies loading or anything so I am not able to figure out what might be causing this. Any ideas would be really helpful.

Hello ADX39655,

Check connectivies with you domain controler.
dcdiag, netdiag, ping

... and with the terminal server licences (if it's not your domain controller)

Check if any application or process is taking up all the resources on that machine.
Also check the event viewer.

Could be several things. From Profile size to issues with authentication. The profile size you can check under 'Documents and Settings'\%USERNAME%. If using Roaming Profiles and if deleting the local cached copy at logoff, if the profile is big, it will take time at logon.
The other thing you can do is to enable userenv logging on this machine. You do it here:
Key: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
Value: UserEnvDebugLevel
Data: 10002 (Hex)
Once you set this, reboot the box. Then login. The log for what happened will be saved in the %System-
Root%\Debug\UserMode\ folder.
