  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 different.

  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
