we have a 2003 ad / domain. i have folder redirection enabled for "my documents" and offline files for mobile users (laptops). when laptops are not connected to the domain, windows 7 takes about 35 seconds from password entry to desktop view (it takes about 5 seconds when they are connected to the domain / network)
i'd like to get rid of this delay but can't find the magic bullet, i've tried
registry: CachedLogonsCount in "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\Current Version\Winlogon\ set to 10
local gp Computer Configuration" -> "Administrative Templates" -> "System" -> "Logon" -> "Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon
local gp Administrative Templates" -> "System" -> "Group Policy" -> set "Startup policy processing wait time
and the one that i really thought would work but didn't was
local gp Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > User Profiles > Set Maximum wait time for the network if a user has a roaming user profile or remote home directory
anyone have any ideas?
