How many OUs are we talking about here Gary? When you try to get information
on where a given GPO is linked, GPMC is having to search the entire domain,
looking at every container object, and searching its gpLink attribute for
the GUID of the GPO. Those attributes are not multi-valued, which means its
doing a string compare across each of the GUIDs in the link list. So, yes,
this will be an expensive process. I do this in fact in one of my products
and it usually doesn't take very long, but your environment may be very

Ok, even in AD Users and Computers when you click on the links tab it hangs
so it looks like the GPMC is probably automatically searching for all links
when you click on a GPO. Now the question is how do I change this behavior
with the GPMC tool?

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
