A slow logon process can come from various cause :


  • A slow active directory:

The user may take some time to authenticate on the AD. 

  • Logon script:

When a logon script is executing and mapping network ressource, it can take time to perform the task. 

  • Windows services and processes that are launched at logon:

This can be checked in msconfig. You can also open a task manager to monitor precisely which processes are run by each users. Doing so you should be able to narrow down the ones that are responsible for this. 

  • Device drivers:

At each logon the server may look to make a peripheral available for a user, slowing down the logon process. 

You can choose to un-check drives and peripherals that are not needed in the local ressource tab of the client generator.
