Slow Logons - Folder Redirection to Blame?

Posted: 04-03-2007, 07:00 PM
Hi,

Recently installed Vista Ultimate on a few of our PCs in our domain
(Win 2k3, Single DC that does everything). However, all logons appear
to be slow, taking as much as 24 minutes to log on! I've had a look
through the event log and found the following entries (newest event
first):

Event 6006, Winlogon
The winlogon notification subscriber <GPClient> took 1389 second(s) to
handle the notification event (Logon).

Event 502, Folder Redirection
Failed to apply policy and redirect folder "Documents" to "\\server
\user storage\Kingsley\".
Redirection options=9001.
The following error occurred: "Failed to copy files from "\\server
\user storage$\Kingsley" to "\\server\user storage\Kingsley"".
Error details: "The system call level is not correct.
".

Event 6005, Winlogon
The winlogon notification subscriber <GPClient> is taking long time to
handle the notification event (Logon).

Event 502, Folder Redirection
Failed to apply policy and redirect folder "Music" to "\\server\user
storage\Kingsley\My Music".
Redirection options=9001.
The following error occurred: "Failed to copy files from "\\server
\user storage$\Kingsley\My Music" to "\\server\user storage\Kingsley
\My Music"".
Error details: "The system call level is not correct.
".

....and more for other folders. Some have worked, but those appear to
all redirect to C:\Users

Any ideas as to why this happens?

Thanks,

KJ

Looks like Vista's seeing a change in Folder Redirection and trying to copy
the files. First, check that the Vista machine is getting the correct
folder target over GP; if so, then it's correct to be trying to move the
files. If not, this is a GP issue to diagnose and probably out of my
league. Is it \\server\user storage or \\server\user storage$?

If the destination is correct, try doing a gpupdate /force on the Vista
machine. This will make your next logon take quite a while (when I
relocated my entire Music folder via GP among other things, my login timed
out after an hour of copying files), but once it finishes it shouldn't need
that long again.

Both point to the same folder

All other GP settings seem to have propergated and when I turned off
the "Copy from old location to new location.." option in the folder
redirection, logon where cut down significantly. This is strange,
since the policy option has been in place for a few months now, and
the XP machines did take a while the first time after implementing it
but vista tries to copy it each time?
