Must not work on Win2k3 because I don't see it taking any effect at all.

Unfortunately your logfile doesn't cover the time of the userenv error.
Looks to me like it couldn't find the domain controller to get the policy
list and so continued the logon with a local (cached) profile and policy
settings.  Try making the following registry change which forces the machine
to wait for the domain (in this case up to 60 seconds, retrying every 2
seconds) and see if it works:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System]
"GroupPolicyRefreshTime"=dword:0000001e
"GroupPolicyRefreshTimeOffset"=dword:0000000f
"UserPolicyMode"=dword:00000001
"GroupPolicyMinTransferRate"=dword:000001f4
"GpNetworkStartTimeoutPolicyValue"=dword:0000003c

We use it on our wireless laptop carts which would periodically appear to
login but didn't really (no network drives or scripted printer because of
the lack of DC).

I've also attached the userenv.log file.


AV, windows firewall, etc are all the same.

When I can get a network guy available I'll lock down the switch and the NIC
to 100/full and see what happens.


To everyone that's chimed in so far, thanks for the help.

Steve E,

Your 1053 error- is that an event id or part of the error details?

Check out this article that points to a dot.net framework 1.1 patch
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/839174

if you do not get further- paste the entire error information in your
next post

What about AV or Windows firewall settings? Are those exactly the same
between the working and not working TS servers?

Many drivers from Dell and HP do not have a hard coded gig-full option
when you are trying to set the speed and duplex setting on the actual
nic property pages but if you are using the HP team or Broadcom teaming
suite- sometimes you can set gig full in the team property settings.

Also- make sure to hard code the switch port speed and duplex settings
to match the server- and if you cannot find a hard setting for gig try
100 full on both the nic and switch to see if that solves the issue- at
least then you can rule out the nic or everything else.

Have you tried to disable DHCP Media Sense if the cards are gigabit
cards?  If the NIC Card is a Gigabit NIC Card then you need to Disable
DHCP Media Sense (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/239924)

Or you could try to install this fix.  Go to
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/840669 and install the proper fix for
that operating system

I'm trying to push software to our terminal servers via GPO.  Our latest
batch of Dell's are failing at this.  At bottom we get 1053 errors from
Userenv.

Windows cannot determine the user or computer name. (The specified
domain
either does not exist or could not be contacted. ). Group Policy
processing
aborted.

The computer and user policies are taking effect though, and refresh
properly after boot-up and/or logon.  It's only during the boot up
process
that we're unable to access GPO's.

We've run into this before but updating the NIC drivers fixed it.  I've
done
the same on these (Dell 2950's Broadcomm NetXtreme II) but no improved
results.

Any ideas on what could be going on?
