As an IT staffer you don't need me to remind you to do the quick no-reboot required XP DMA BUG fix. After that you would read http://blogs.technet.com/b/markrussinovich/archive/2010/01/13/3305263.aspx and begin your own investigation.
Hi, I need some help. I've been testing this issue for about two weeks and nothing I find is working to fix our issue.
Problem: Only Window's XP machines on our domain take forever to login once the user has logged in...stuck at "applying settings" for around 15 minutes.
We use local profiles, with 2 domain controllers server01 and server02. I've verified from the cmd that the ipconfig /all and gpresult are mirrored from machine to machine. I verified them against a Windows XP computer that has no issues. I also did a userenvdebuglog. and found this where the delay seems to be:
USERENV(2ec.2f0) 10:50:41:984 IsSyncForegroundPolicyRefresh: Synchronous, Reason: NonCachedCredentials
USERENV(2ec.24 10:50:41:984 IsSyncForegroundPolicyRefresh: Synchronous, Reason: NonCachedCredentials
USERENV(3c4.3dc) 10:51:26:166 LibMain: Process Name: C:\WINDOWS\system32\wbem\wmiprvse.exe
USERENV(2ec.5cc) 11:05:08:741 ProcessGPOs: network name is 192.168.49.0
USERENV(4a8.88 11:05:08:804 GetProfileType: Profile already loaded.
I'm not very good at reading the log so it was kind of hard. I'm not sure what else I can try so any help would be great!
