Word 2010 Active Directory Integration

Hi,

We are running a Workgroup network with a third party DNS Server. We have been testing SharePint and have been seeing some long delays when trying to open Word documents on a Client machine. Other documents are fine, pdfs etc but it can take upto a minute to work with Word.

I have a Win2003 test domain and setup the same test and it completes in 2-3 seconds. Ive run wireshark on the first network and have noticed a DNS request for SRV_LDAP._TCP.
I know this is an Active Directory Service Record but do not know why its being called on a Workgroup Server which doesnt have AD installed.

I assume its a feature of Word 2010 that makes the call, im not sure if its causing the delays but id like to stop Word trying to find a DC if possible, just to rule it out.

Does anyone know how i can achieve this? Is there some configuration to Sharepoint or Word 2010 which will make Word stop making these DNS calls?

Thanks

Hi,

I hope you already aware SharePoint gel with AD seamlessly currently its mandate. Have you created the web application with claims based authentication type. Checkout the SQl performance it can be the main rreason for delays.

Cheers,
