Windows 7 log time to log in over VPN
Posted on 2012-03-23
I have two Windows 7 boxes at a remote location that connect to a domain via a site-to-site vpn. Both boxes take at least 1.5 minutes at boot up to CTRL+ALT+DEL screen. Then takes about 2 minutes to login to the domain.
None of the XP boxes at the same location have this issue.
I have tried:
Disabling Network Location Awareness, no help.
removing one of the computers from domain and joining again, no help.
manually setting the NIC speed, no help.
updating the NIC drivers, no help.
moving the computer out of the OU and blocking group policy inheritance, no help.
Disabling all service except the bare minimum, similar to safe mode but the are a few services (like Group Policy Client) that I cannot disable.
There are no GPO that is mapping of any printers, they are added manually. This is mapping of network drives in the user profile but I have also tried disabling that script but that was no help either.
If I boot the workstation in safe mode with networking then the logon time is quick, like 30 seconds .
