[SOLVED] Initial User Login to Domain takes a long time.
« on: January 19, 2021, 11:06:39 pm »
I've come up with a solution but I'm not sure what the cause is.

Problem: User logging into a domain connection computer for the first time. (no profile on the machine, roaming or non-roaming profile doesn't matter)
User is presented with the "Hi, we are setting things up for you..." animation. This animation runs for 15 minutes or until the power management turns the screen off.
Then the user can log in. All subsiquent logins are fast. Connecting for the first time via Remote Desktop Connection doesn't present the "Hi... " animation and logs in almost right away.

Solution: Use a GPO to disable the "Hi..." animation on login. First time login's directly on the machine go quickly.
Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Logon
Set the “Show First Sign-In Animation” option to “Disabled”

Zentyal Core 6.1.6 - Windows 10 Pro 2004, 1909, 1804 (tested broken and fixed)

Not sure if this is part of a bigger problem but I think it can be marked as solved.
