Slow start when not connected to the corporate network
Okay, here is the situation... Just got my hands on a fully loaded Dell
D830, running Vista Ultimate. All is good with the world whilst connected
to the LAN. Vista connects to all the drives, and has no *noticeable*
slowdowns -- I can power up the laptop and be ready to use it within 90
seconds... But this all changes once I disconnect and go remote. If I have
to reboot the laptop, it will take 8 to 10 minutes before it becomes usable.
The laptop is part of a Windows 2003 domain, and a number of GPO's are
linked to the OU (user and machine). My gut feeling is that Vista is
attempting to connect all the network drives, as they are set as persistent
in the login script. This does not happen under XP...
Anyone got any trouble-shooting tips for this?
