Hi Darren,

Thanks for your response, let me add a bit more information. We have 6 domain 
controllers in two different sites, 3 in one and 3 in the other. Interesting 
thing about this setup is that the two sites are not over WAN links, all DC's 
are in the same data center on the same subnet plugged into the same switch, 
but separated into two different VLANs. These are separated for the purpose of 
our Identity Management system. I'm not sure if this could be a cause to my 
problem, but my GPMC tool is pointing to the DC that I authenticate to and the 
one that holds the PDC emulator role.

I tried the scripts and same thing, it hanges at the following,
  -- Where this GPO is linked (Sites,Domain,OU) --
I hope this helps a little bit because so far it hasn't helped me figure this 
out. I thought that it was just because we have so many OU's and it parses 
through all of them, but I'm hoping to be wrong and get this resolved.

  I can't think of any reason this would be the case under normal 
circumstances. What might be interesting is to see if you get the same delay 
when accessing GPO information via the GPMC scripts?

  We have a large AD 2003 domain, about 75 thousand objects and lots & lots of 
OUs. When I open the GPMC and click on one the GPO's it takes about 10 minutes 
for it to display the information about that GPO, it hangs at an hour glass. I 
made sure the tool is pointing to the right DC and it still sits at an hour 
glass for about 10 minutes. All servers are talking on Gig links so bandwidth 
isn't a problem.


  If anyone has seen this an has a fix I would greatly appreciate your 
assistance with this as it drives me crazy.


  Thanks in advance
