    I have this configuration

    DHCP clients witch take their ip from a router.
    primary DNS => my w2003 server
    Some uses roaming profiles, some does not.
    Clients use windows 2000 profesional and some uses windows XP, all services
    packs are installed., all have updated norton antivirus

    I create the profile and everything is ok, but 2 or 3 logons after, the user
    cannot logon, the machine stalls forever in applying user configuration, and
    there's nothing I can do to make the user to enter. The weird thing is that
    the pc seems to do something, because the disk appears to be working.

    All I can do is delete the profile and everything turns back to normal, for
    a few hours.

    Anyone with a similar problem?

  2. Is your server setup on the router as the primary DNS server or is it static
    on all the clients ?

    is static on all my clients, the router has two more DNS but when I run
    ipconfig /all the primary DNS is my w2k3 server and the other two (router)
    are additional.

    I don't believe that is a DNS problem. It can be something in the clients?
    Until the last week they were login on to a NT4 server.

  5. Are you adding them in yourself ?
