Roaming Profile Causing LOOONG Logon/Logoff Time

Experts,

I'm having a VERY bizarre case of long logon times for a new branch office running Windows 7 64-bit professional, domain environment, 2008R2 local server (gigabit connectivity). Here's the symptoms:

1. User with no pre-created roaming profile logs in the first time...works great!
2. User then logs off the PC (start - logoff), screen hangs at "please wait for user profile service" for 2-3 minutes before completing logoff.
3. All subsequent attempts to log on / off take 2-3 minutes hanging at the "please wait for user profile service" screen.

The network connections are all very fast...grabbed a packet capture of a good logon (#1 above) and a bad log off (#2 above). It appears as though it's just writing nonsense for a LONG time. The profile size is 6 MB...

I've attached the packet captures here. NOTE: THESE ARE PCAP FILES (WIRESHARK); PLEASE RENAME THE .TXT EXTENSION TO PCAP.

Please help!

Have you entered your domain's IP on the WINS in Properties of Network adapter? It has to do something with your communication with the domain server. I'm sorry I cannot understand your attachments. Is your network cable reliable? Can you try using the same cable to another unit to check if it log-on and off that long? Thanks!

Put the computer in clean boot mode ..reboot and then try to log off


Clean boot process

Start-type - msconfig- click on startup tab- click disable all...then click services tab- put a check on hide all microsoft services ...and then click disable all....click ok and then restart the computer in normal mode.

If everything works fine in clean boot then enable five startup items and services at a time to find the faulty software.

do you have any group policies that are being applied to the win7 clients on logon / logoff?  sometimes a bad gpo can cause this behaviour because it can take the client a long time to process a failed gpo ...
