Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Are the using roaming profiles?  If so check the server as it could be an issue with the sever hard drive. If not look so see if there are any shared folders that are set to be available offline.

Your best bet would be to check the logs to see that if there are any errors while shutting down or rebooting. Also depending on the resources that your DC has as well will be a factor.

Do you have Anti-virus installed on this DC?
Do you have updates being applied automatically?

These things need to be checked.

If you do have Anti-virus installed on this DC (which you should have) there is a complete list of exclusions that Microsoft illustrates in a KB article.

You can use the windows performance toolkit to trace shutdowns. It will log off of the processes that run and how long they took.

I would also run a gpresult on the machines to see if any scripts/etc are running on shutdown. You may also want to enable verbose mode so that startup/shutdown messages are clearer.

Tracing the shutdown process would be done by viewing the logs in the System Event Log as well you might want to check the Application logs as well to ensure that any applications that are running are shutting down or closing properly.

What you can do as a test is move this computer account to a test OU where there are no policies applied. From there the only policy that will be applied is the Default Domain Policy. You can then start to apply policies to the test OU one at a time until you run into this issue where it is taking a long time to shutdown.

Once you know what the policy is you can check the settings and make sure that there aren't any misconfigurations.
