Windows !0 Pro on a Domain

Hi All we have a Windows Server R2 2012 Domain, and Most of the Machines are Windows 10,

All Machines have a Local Domain Account, the problem is when a User Takes home the Machine to work From home, when you boot the machine and enter Login Credentials Can Take up to 3-4 Minutes to Login.

Its as if its looking for the domain, I have never experienced this with windows 7 Clients etc.

I know its a Network thing because if you boot with no Ethernet it goes straight in???

so Laptop users that are Home/Office users will have this issue.

Simple trouble shooting would be to take a test user with no GPOs applied to him and log him in and see. If better, add the GPOs of your normal user one by one and test.
Surely, this is no win10 phenomenon, we don't see it here in our domain and haen't read about it anywhere. Also look at cached logon scripts.
Are they Windows 10 professional or enterprise?

Sounds like DNS, is there any hard-coded settings in the NIC?

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

And they are Windows 10 Professional
Feedback on all comments would be helpful :)

Hi McKnife

I don't this it Would be A GPO Problem because if you Simply Unplug the Network Lead Before Logging In it would go Straight in, this is on a Domain Joined User

And the Only GPO Policy that we have is for a Mapped Drive the rest is Default
Good to know. And computer GPOs? None as well?
In general, your conclusion "I doubt this it Would be A GPO Problem because if you Simply Unplug the Network Lead Before Logging In it would go Straight in, this is on a Domain Joined User" is wrong. Right the opposite. If the cable is connected, it will search for a DC to read the policies.

But If you had Domain Joined Laptops, which we have in another Environment, that get Taken Home they log straight in with almost the Same Setup,?   apart from the fact its a 2008 Domain.

If they have Local Domain Accounts which they do the Login Process should be quick, otherwise when users leave the office it would be pretty Painful for them.

There are not Computer GPO,s

We have domain laptops. If I start them offline, they start fast and logon fast.
Doesn't matter. Please use procmon, a free monitoring software by microsoft. It has an option "enable boot logging". With it, you can log the whole process and analyse it.

We will try the ProcMon approach and post back, however im confused.

If a Domain Joined user takes his laptop home and boots in home environment, Its never going to Get the GPO because its on a Completely different Network, so it will update the GPO next time its on domain.

Ive never experienced long delays simply because the Machine is not in the domain

I forgot to add the Users have Home Folders Setup

So I would recheck to make sure that there isn't a DNS server being specified. 90% of slow logins on domain clients is due to a DNS issue on the client. Also make sure there's nothing in the host file.

There is A DNS Server which is the DC we have calculated Logins to be about 25 Seconds does that sound to Long?
25 seconds from entering the password to seeing the desktop? Long or not: depends. With SSD drives, this would be long, with HDDs and maybe a strict virus scanner active (which slows down the processing of files) it might be normal.
