Notice: This doesn't only apply to ClearOS. This applies to ALL non-Windows Server-ran domains.

I realized that domain logins to Samba domains and other non-Windows Server driven domains are very slow, and takes up to 30 seconds before it shows your desktop... Even on very powerful systems, with a really stable and fast network connection.
So, I've been doing a little bit of research and even playing around on some systems of mine.
I've figured out how to GREATLY improve login wait time, to nearly instant.
It's all with the simple work of messing around with Group Policies.
You must change a few settings in the policy editor.
Please note however, this must be done to all systems on your network...

How to do this?
Simple, open group policy editor [Start -> Run -> "gpedit.msc"]
Follow these paths once you are in the GPol.

Local Computer Policy / Computer Configuration / Administrative Templates / System / User Profiles
"Set maximum wait time for the network if a user has a roaming...." to 1 (setting it to 0 will default it to 30 seconds)

Local Computer Policy / Computer Configuration / Administrative Templates / System / Group Policy
"Startup policy processing wait time..." to 1 (do NOT set it to 0)

[ I think though, this slow login only applies when you have Roaming Profiles turned on... Not entirely sure there ]

I hope this helps anyone who had to wait half a minute or more... :)

If the Admins deem this helpful, please include it in the User Guides and Documentation? :)

Any questions/feedback/comments?

    Hi Link,

    This sounds like great news (even when it still has to be done on every client ... :dry: ).
    Maybe some of the developers will be able to force these settings with a logon script ... ?!?
    I was just about to start testing roaming profiles next week so this could be the one thing I have been looking for.
    I will let you know about the results.

    Greetings,

    John

    I also have this problem i'm setting up new computers after i map drive network it took almost 1min or more to login, after i login the user account the screen will turn black before it goes to the desktop but i tried a user account with no map drive network the login is fast. Do you think this group policy fix will work for me?

    Recently I have faced the same issues. And the reason behind this chances is that your DNS on this machine is not set up correctly, go into your network adapter settings and set the primary DNS server to your internal server address. I would also suggest unticking IPv6 if your network uses IPv4 to see if this solves the problem. and Recently i am getting the problem Error code 0xc0000001 and it's quite frustrating. So, guys help me out.
