Slow login once MFA fulfilled

JJ-Admin 0 Reputation points

Hi Team,

We have a user who has slow login times once MFA has been fulfilled. This happens on any network, home or office.

Once the user fulfills mfa, it just loads for 2 minutes before logging the user in.

This only happens on his Windows device (we haven't tested on another device).

Any idea how to troubleshoot this?

    Hi @JJ-Admin , there are a few steps you can take to see what the issue is here:

    1. Check the PRT status: Open a Command Prompt window in the context of the logged-in user and run dsregcmd /status. The "SSO state" section provides the current Primary Refresh Token (PRT) status.
    2. Find the error code: Check the "Attempt Status" field under the "AzureAdPrt" field in the dsregcmd output for any error codes or issues.
    3. Review sign-in logs: Examine the Azure AD sign-in logs for any authentication-related issues or delays. You can access these logs in the Azure portal under Azure Active Directory > Monitoring > Sign-ins.
    4. Check device performance: Analyze the Windows device's performance, including CPU, memory, and disk usage, to identify any bottlenecks that could be causing the slow login times.
    5. Examine event logs: Review the Windows Event Viewer logs for any errors or warnings related to the slow login issue. Focus on the Application, Security, and System logs.
    6. Test with another device: If possible, test the user's login process on another device to determine if the issue is specific to their current Windows device.
    7. Update software: Ensure that the user's Windows device and any related software (e.g., Azure AD Connect, Azure AD PowerShell) are up-to-date with the latest patches and updates.

    Also maybe clearing the cache and cookies. Let me know if any of this helps. If not we can open a free support ticket for you.
