Treated same as before, they get brand new 2008 TS profiles.  They are
roaming same as before.

 

Everything is virtualised on XenServer, are there any tweaks for 2008 on
XenServer?, we have the whole environment on XenServer (they use XenServer
for their 2003 environment as well).

 

Has anyone tested logon times between base 2k3 and base 2k8 in the same
environment?  It would be nice to know if there is noticeable difference or
if maybe we have introduced something that is making it that much slower.

 

Thanks,

Ant.

 

PS           What should we class as "normal/good" logon times for 2k8?
(With standard setup ie normal roaming profiles, nothing clogging up the
startup, everything on same GB LAN etc...)

What about the User Profiles? How did you treat them on Windows 2008, that
can be one of the reasons ..

I've done a few upgrades recently moving people from 2003 to 2008 SP2 and
latest Xenapp.

 

Nearly every time the users have noticed a longer login time.

 

One company went from 7 secs to 14 secs (i know it's not a long login time
but it has doubled!).  We basically replicated their Windows 2003 setup
(xenapp\DCs\File\Print\SQL) but have everything on Windows 2008.

 

Most things work ok but the login times are killing me, I'm having to
explain why this is without really knowing why there is such a difference.
Anyone else notice this?  Any tips?

 

Thanks,

Ant.
