I have two new terminal servers I have installed and I have one pc with the connection to the log on screen on the new terminal servers being really slow. I have our old terminal server still online and connection to this one is fast eg 2-3 secs. The new servers from this particular pc takes about 20-25secs to connect. I have pinged all the servers and they are pinging fine. I have tested the new servers on several pcs and they connect quickly 2-3 secs. Just cant work out why this particular pc is so slow to connect. Anyone have any ideas?

PC is a windows XP SP3
Servers - Windows 2003 standard R2

Dear Jerzak1976,

Please let me see if I can be of assistance:
1. Do you have 3D or GL screensavers running on the new servers, then disable those as this will dramatically slow down the servers (not only RDP but any other service as well).
2. How (which application/tool, and using which settings such as resolution, graphic details, device redirection) are you RDP'ing to the servers?
3. Are you doing '2' towards the new servers, EXACTLY the same as towards the old?
4. How are you authenting towards the servers (loacl machine accounts, or AD/Domain Accounts)?

Kind regards,
Soren

Excellent point, if the screen resolution is quite different, it can often take awhile while it "adjusts" to the different screen resolution upon connecting.

No screen savers on at all.
Display is at a lower resolution, but with the old RDC to the older server it was on high and it comes up pretty quickly! It is all the same as the old server.
The user is in a local environment connection, the they connect to the server via RDC!
Cant seem to work this one out. Even if I change the screen resolution it makes no difference.
Such a pain as all the other users connect fine, and from this pc so does the connection to the old server... mmmmm

Dear Jerzak1976,

Hm, this could then be an issue with local/roaming profiles.
If you RDP to the new server logging on with a local/computer account (of the server), is it then also slow?
On both the old server and the new server, check if the user's profiles are local or romaing.
Looking back to your more information.

N.B. I assume you're ruled out antivirus and firewall already (at least that such is "identical" installed, running and configured on both the old server and the new server)?!

Kind regards,
Soren
