I have found that DynamicSiteName is not "always" populated or accurate,
as it may be the last successful logon.  I am guessing on the last
successful logon.  But, it is more than 95% accurate.

        Others have responded here, but one thing I'll add is that
mapping drives, even remotely, should not really take that long. If that
is where the process is hanging up, then you might want to put some
conditional testing in your logon script that tests as to whether the
user is in their home site. This might involve putting an environment
variable on the machines that list their home site, and then testing
whether the current AD site matches that. The current site name is
stored in the registry at
        Outside of that, I don't know of a way to stop logon scripts
from running with GP because they don't actually run as part of GP

        Thanks Bart for you feedback. A little more information. We do
not use roaming profiles. Is there a way I can get the login script to
stop running so the users are not trying to map drives from remote

                Logging on to a domain controller in another site
shouldn't make a difference in GPO processing times as they are in that
local site also (DC/sysvol). 
                The gpo processing will check the version and will not
apply unless there is a difference. 
                What i'm suspecting is that you draw the roaming profile
from their "home office" share over the wan. 
                Also folder redirection to home folders on their
"native" file server will slow it down cosiderably. 
                The only way to solve this is to deploy DFS based file
shares for home folders and profiles. 
                Also make sure you son't delete local cached copies of
their profile as this will also force GPO settings to reapply

                Good Morning, 

                We have many people who travel to other offices as part
of their jobs and the logon experience when they get there is painfully
slow. Is there a way to set a policy so if a user authenticates to a
domain controller away from their "home office" that they will not
receive any policies such as a logon script or folder redirection.  Any
suggestions would be appreciated.
