In general, I agree with you Ben. I do try to discourage outright product 
pitching on the list, or if you do pitch product, at least do it in response to 
someone specifically asking for product referrals and try to list all the 
products in the space, out of fairness.

In this case, Alan's Policy Reporter tool is free and a good tool for parsing 
userenv logs. He didn't mention the free part, but that probably would have 
gone a long way towards making this sound less like a product pitch and more 
like an offer of help :-)


Thanks,

Darren

I don't think the list is the place for outright solicitation.  Especially 
since I wasn't even asking for assistance.

Hi Ben,

 

You can try my Policy Log Reporter. It has a File/Set Verbose logging option
and it reads all of the log records and displays "time from Start of GPO
processing". It will help you understand all of the stages in GPO processing
as well. If you still can't make sense of the log, send it to me and I will
have a look.

How do I set that option?

Try enabling verbose userenv logging. That will show you where time is spent
during the GP processing cycle. It may not actually be GP at all, but some
other process contending with GP.

That doesn't show what GPO is taking 10 minutes to load though.

I have a couple of users that have to wait 10-15 minutes when they login
while GPOs are being deployed. If I move their laptops to a Test OU the
problem disappears. If I block inheritance on the existing OU the problem
disappears. I have therefore made the assumption that the problem is being
caused by one of the GPOs that is being inherited from an OU above. When
logging on their screen stays on Applying Computer Settings for the majority
of the time it takes to login.  I have assigned all the GPOs that they
usually run to a test OU and have been disabling them one at a time to try
to find the offending GPO. Is there a quicker way of finding out which GPO
is causing the problem?
