Attaching Home Folder to User Profiles on AD increases local Logon Time

    Question

  • So I've done a good amount of research and still am having a hard time pin pointing the issue of why it's taking a test user roughly 70-90 seconds to login to the domain. We have our GPO to point their profiles to their respective home folder directory, but users outside of this GPO can login in under 30 seconds. I captured a log of a user within the GPO and could only make out error 1722 which refers to the RPC server being unavailable. Can anyone help me interpret what's going on? Any insight is much appreciated.

    Link to the log file:

  • After some more research and using the Policy Reporter to further interpret the log, it seems like the idle/slow times are generating from the GPO being applied.. we have the Map Drive GPO begin and then end 20 seconds later into the Default Domain Policy. Why would that take so long for 1 GPO policy?

  • Does the map actually occur?

  • Yes, all the GPO's are applied as they should.

  • the logfile you provided, seems to only show computer-configuration (machine policy) - it doesn't show any user policy at all.

    Are you referring to the "profile" tab of ADUC, where you can populate the "legacy" userprofilepath ?

    Are your referring to GP Preferences Drive Mappings?

    Or a logon script of some kind?

    The logfile you provided, does seem to show some delays in establishing network connectivity - this could be a combination of things..

    If you suspect GPOs to be the reason for slow logons:
