Slow link detection - Load local copy of profile

This problem occors on a not regular basis.

A user logs on on a Windows 7 64 bit computer. Windows detects a slow link to the server where a copy of the user profile is located. A massage pops up wich say that windows has detected a slow link and you are logged on with a copy of the standard local profile.

how can i disable this?

i don't want to use slow link detection.
i don't want this message to pop up.
i would like the user to wait a little bit long while loading his profile

i;ve been searching for this and evryone is redirecting me to this page.

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;227260 

but the option Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\slow link detection isn't available to me. not on a windows 2008 server and not on a 2003 server. as the document says this page is only for windows 2000...

can anybody advise me on solving this 'problem'

does it only happen on this 1 user account? what happens if another user logs into the same machine? if there are no problems with the 2nd user you could try rebuilding the troubled users profile?

This happens on the same machine with multiple users. but not on a regular basis. so if the users restarts it's computer the chance is very well that his profile that time will load succesfully.

just thinking out loud here for what i'd check:

latest NIC drivers?
latest switch firmware?
tried another network port?
how big are the users profiles? it could be timing out waiting for them to load

This problem occurs in an productive enviroment. i can imagine that there are network problems. But this problem also occurs on a test enviroment with a virtual server hosting a windows 7 64 bit VM and a 2008 r2 DC server. completly up to date. this is an powerfull server with should handle a user logon without problems.

because i've seen it on two different locations with different configurations i doubt the problem to be solved with the latest swicht firmware / nic drivers. but i've checked the NIC drivers. they are new.

We use unmanached switches so there are no firmware updates for those.

do you know a gpo setting wich disables the detect slow network connectivity?



all the user profiles are no bigger than 5 MB.

because i've seen it on two different locations with different configurations<<apologies, i thought it was just the single machine

there is a similar policy - Computer Configuration>Policies>Administrative Templates>System>Slow network connection timeout for user profiles

Thanks MRRoonie,

i've found the settings. but it's one folder deeper.

Computer Configuration>Policies>Administrative Templates>System>User Profiles>

i've enabled the option

Do not detect slow network connections.

I will test this next week. But i think the problem will be solved bij this setting.
Thank You!
