Network PCs are taking ages to startup and log in.
Posted on 2014-01-29
We have Windows 2012 DCs and XP and windows 7
We are having network problems this morning the PCs are not logging in quickly .
When the client PCs are started it says : Applying computer settings ( takes ages)
and after this it says: Running startup scripts( This also takes ages)
After this I get the login window and the desktop is completely blank and it takes ages to load the desktop icons.
I saw the events in the event viewer and I saw the below error and not sure if this error is related to this problem.
The DNS server was unable to create a resource record for 74a652ac-fcb0-4253-980d-137942c84944._msdcs.domain.local. in zone domain.local. The Active Directory definition of this resource record is corrupt or contains an invalid DNS name. The event data contains the error.
Logon Name:DNS Server
Source: DNS-server service
Any help to trouble shoot will be really helpful.
