Win2k pro v slow to boot after server change from
The server in our small LAN has recently been changed over to Win2k
Advanced Server from NT4. Now all the win98 clients take the same
time to boot as before, but clients running win2k pro boot very slowly
- about 8 minutes from a previous 3 or 4. The delays occur whilst the
screens read "Applying computer settings", "Loading your personal settings" and "Applying personal
settings", ie both before and after the logon, and before the logon
script runs. I don't know enough about win2k boot sequence to know
what's happening here. The configuration of the network has
apparently not changed since the server software changed.
Why are win2k clients being affected in this way, and not 98? What
can be done to resolve this?

Re: Win2k pro v slow to boot after server change from
There is stuff in MSDN on this - frustratingly I cannot find it. As far as I can remember, it may be due to the clients having trouble contacting the domain controller. Have a look at the client and server event logs.
Sorry to be so vague, but I hope it gives you a start!
