windows server, logon delay

Microsoft Windows terminal server 2003 5...

Specs: Windows Server 2003
Our application is creating a new Windows user in answer to each request. In space of one year hundred of thousands of new users are being added and subsequently deleted. We noticed that after a while our servers start to slow down while logging on a new user. The delay occurs when Windows displays "Applying your personal setting" message, taking 25 seconds on a used server as opposed to 5 seconds it takes on a brand new machine. Each time a user logs on it logs on using a brand new user account. We cleaned up the registry of any residual entries left over while adding and deleting a users but it made no difference. Is there any way to correct this problem without having to reinstall the OS?

hi radu..........

i had got the same problem before.............
the problem should be with the DNS setting....
set ur DNS as the IP of your 2003 Server System for the first login....now it will not take much time to logon.....after that you can change the DNS as u want it to be.....

Hi Umesh,

Your answer looks promising. Unfortunately I am not able to understand well what I should do. Could you explain it a little more clearly?

Thanks, Radu

Your issue radu_marg has nothing to do with dns.

It only has to do with the creation and deletion of users
"Each time a user logs on it logs on using a brand new user account."

This is the source of your issue.
