i have a Problem with a Win7 machine. Long story short: The machine has absolute no problem at the Headquarter, but at a remote site it needs endless until the logon screen appears and endless until the users desktop appears.
Short story long :-)
I dont want to affect your opinions, but i think it has something to do with the fact, that there is no DC at the remote site. The problem occurs only as domain member. when we take it out of the domain, it boots fast.
the user has no server profile
the sites are connected via IPsec
the client gets his ip via DHCP and has the SBS2003 at the HQ as prim. DNS
There is another DC at HQ but without DNS
There are other DCS at others sites, but cant be reached, no routing
I checked the AD sites&services, the site is created, the subnet is configured, there is a intersite-connection to HQ with lowest costs
I checked the RegKey HKLM\system\curr.contr.set\services\netlogon\parameters\dynamicsitename
the value on the client is the site it should be
i checked the entries in DNS _ldap.tcp_.<sitename>._sites.dc._msdcs.domain.local
there are entries from the two dc at HQ
the windows logfile on both DC at HQ have an entry->
5792 Logon : the remote site has no LDAP entries, LDAP-Server from site HQ will govern this site due to replication costs
after endless logon there are entries in windows logfiles
event 6006 logon : GPClient needed 206 sec. to create session
event 6005 logon : GPClient needs some time to logon
event 6006 logon : GPClient needed 252 sec. to logon
the networkdrives from the startscript are connected and accessable
i checked gpupdate /force
it takes about a minute
ive seen gpupdate failed one time, after a (long :-) reboot it worked again
i checked viáriable logonserver, its the sbs2003 at HQ
i checked nblookup, works
i checked nslookup, works
i can ping across the tunnel everthing from everywhere
you can work with the machine after this long boot and logon periode as normal.
access shares and so on
a winXP machine on this site has no problems
can anybody help?
i can prioide drawings of the network, screenshots, anything you need
thanks in advance
