Windows XP slow logon as domain user (offline)
Posted on 2011-09-04
I am experiencing a strange issue where when I've got a thin client laptop unplugged from the network, logging on as a domain user (that's cached locally) takes like 1 - 2 mins after you login and Applyin settings step passes. There's no start menu at that point and no desktop icons, just a wallpaper. Even hitting ctrl+alt+del doesn't bring up anything until 15 seconds later or so.
If I'm plugged into the company LAN it will logon fast, just fine.
Would this be a local service causing this delay?
Logging in as local user accounts seem to load fast, just fine.
Only a few apps on here, Citrix, Lync, Internet Explorer, Greenshot. No antivirus (just a file based write filter running since it's a thin client, xp embedded).
