Load balancing on server 2008 working, but taking ages to authorise logins now

hey guys,

I recently followed this article:

http://www.brianmadden.com/blogs/gabeknuth/archive/2007/06/26/a-closer-look-at-session-broker-load-balancing-in-windows-server-2008.aspx

Managed to get a bunch of TS servers to work load balanced.

However, once I enter the name of the TS server into the remote desktop connection, it takes at least one minute until it authorises and logs into the TS server. Is there a way to speed this up? Before the load balancing was set up, it was a lot faster.

many thanks
Yashy

Hmm I must admit, I've set up session brokers many times and haven't noticed any degradation in speed.

How is this DNS behaving? More specifically, the server it's on?

When you do an NSLOOKUP for the load-balanced resource, does it return it properly and quickly? If you have multiple DNS servers, have the records all replicated or is any forwarding taking place?

Also, if you try to do a mstsc /admin (or /console if an earlier [pre 6.1 I think] version) with /v <servername> does that respond any quicker?
