Warning showing "The winlogon notification subscriber <GPClient> is taking long time to handle the notification event (StartShell)

    Question

  • We are getting warning messages in our domain controller when administrator is logging to domain controller. "The winlogon notification subscriber <GPClient> is taking long time to handle the notification event (StartShell)" followed by "The winlogon notification subscriber <GPClient> took 600 second(s) to handle the notification event (StartShell). It will take almost 10 minutes for the administrator profile to get fully loaded. It will be showing a blue screen for 10 minutes and after that will login. This user is having problem in all domain controllers that he logs in. No other domain admins are affected while logging onto the same domain controllers. Only this administrator account is affected.

    IPV6 is turned off. All domain admins in same OU. But only this administrator is having problem.

  • Hi,

     

    It looks like that the administrator profile is abnormal.

     

    Since this issue only occurs on one administrator account, you may consider to create a new user account to replace the old one. You may remove the problematic administrator account after making sure everything works fine.

  • We were having a similar issue with some of our desktop systems. After some troubleshooting and research we determined that the issue was actually being caused by a login script. The script was running as a user configuration at logon, it was attempting to run a batch file to xcopy a directory from our network to the local C: the command was requesting user interaction to determine if the file path was a file or directory. However, this was happening through GPO and so we did not see the prompt, just a blue screen and a cursor for 10min. After removing the link from this GPO the issue was resolved. It seems that there might be a GPO or Script within a GPO causing an issue. Try to eliminate what GPO’s are applying to the computer account and then the user account to troubleshoot. Or use gpresult to compare results from an account that logs in successfully and one that does not.

    Additionally, some of the post mentioned disabling running the script synchronously. I hope this helps.
