I have just configured a Windows 7 laptop for use on a SBS 2003 domain.
Everything works perfectly, except users with folder redirection have to wait approximately 45 seconds before they see their desktop after entering their credentials. This happens both when they are connected remotely to the main site via VPN and when offline.
By contrast, users with no folder redirection can log in virtually instantaneously (both with and without a network connection).
Is this additional delay to be expected? If not, what possible options do we have to reduce the logon times?
