GPO is taking too long to apply

Daniel Lima 1 Reputation point

Good morning guys,

I have an environment with Windows Server 2019, 3 domain controllers.

It happens that when users log on, the network mapping, shortcuts, wallpaper do not appear, requiring a logoff and logon.

I checked the GPO configuration and it's in sync, so it's also configured to wait for the network to boot.

I checked with Dell's Switch team, port settings are port-fast, and spanning three

All my park is Windows 10 22H2.

Does anyone know what could be going on?

    Thank you for your question and reaching out. I can understand you are having query\issues related to Slow GPO applying.

    1. Open Event viewer -> Go to Applications and Services Logs –> Microsoft -> Windows -> Applications and Services Logs -> Group Policy -> Operational -> Check events with the IDs 4016 and 5016 show the time when the processing of GPO application extensions starts and ends.
    2. Avoid costly WMI filters such as LDAP queries and Disable any long running startup scripts and The installation of software deployed through GPO.
    3. Verify DNS settings on client computers and it should be pointed to your DCs IP.
    4. Verify Date and time should be sync with your AD DC.

    It is always DNS - the famous saying. :)

    Check out my guide - ensure your DC's are setup properly. If you have to make adjustments, wait 24 hours before seeing if the issues are still existing or not.
