I have recently been given the task of trying to work out why the login time (not machine boot time) for some of our users seems slow.
The vast majority of clients (95%) are running on XP sp3, Windows 2003 domain controlers. Most users have the same model of machine.
I would like to be able to see how long each of the polices are taking to load (if possable split user and computer) and any other info that might help (services starting etc) I changed the userenvdebuglevel reg option to generate the userenv.log file but it didn't contain very much info.
UPDATE I have been investigating the problem this afternoon. I managed to get some info more info out by turning on userenvdebuglevel. For some reason i'm not sure of yet, there is a 20 second gap between two processes
Its only affecting a certain subset of users, so i think its something happening in a policy, only problem is i'm not sure where it is happening. The error is pointing at a dns issues so maybe a path is wrong somewhere
