Domain controller login delay
Posted on 2011-02-27
Every time we reboot our Windows 2003 domain controller, it takes a very long time to actually log into the domain. The error message is:
The system cannot log you on due to the following error: specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted.
Please try again or consult your system administrator.
Eventually, We are able to log in.
The concerns me particularly because it is the domain controller, and we should be able to log into active directory quicker here than anywhere else. Right now it takes about five minutes to log into the domain. Is this a problem, and if so, what can be done to speed up?
