Win2k3 x64 server applying computer settings 10 minutes

I have two Dell R200 servers with identical hardware (except for disk size) running same opsys (win2k3 x64).  One applies computer settings for 20 seconds, the other for 10 minutes after boot.  Both are member servers authenticating to the same AD server and pointing to same internal dns servers.  ipconfig /all results look the same.  If I disconnect the network cable, the offending server boots fast and avoids the 10 minute delay.

I have removed a/v, removed windows search, changed from ethernet1 to ethernet2, changed ports on the core switch, changed ethernet cables.  I don't see any packet errors on the core switch ports involved.  I have run diagnostics and all passes.  I have contacted Dell and have upgraded every driver, bios, firmware, etc. and nothing helps.

Any thoughts as to what to try next?  Thanks.
