Applying your personal settings takes too long!

Hi all!

I am currently working on our NT4 to W2K3 migration and have set up a small test network to test out things. I am noticing a strange problem when logging onto a W2k3 (SP1) AD Domain from a Windows XP Pro (SP2) workstation. The Applying your personal settings window remains displayed for about 10-15 mins. Looking at the Application Event Log I note the following entry:

Event ID: 1053
Windows cannot determine the user or computer name. (The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted). Group Policy processing aborted.

Eventually once the window disappears I am logged onto the AD domain.
What could be causing the above? Any help on this would be much appreciated.

Thanks
Pierre

RE: Applying your personal settings takes too long!

Hi,

I found some related articles:

883271 Event ID 1053 and 1058 appear in the Application log after you
upgrade to Windows 2000 Server or Windows Server 2003 with Active Directory
http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;EN-US;883271

262958 Lookup of Permissions on ACLs Shows Only SIDs
http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;EN-US;262958

Also, I'd like to suggest you check if the DC is working and if we can ping
DC with IP.

Best regards,

Re: Applying your personal settings takes too long!

Thanks for your e-mail. I discovered the cause to be related to an incorrect DNS IP address!

Thanks!
