    I'm playing with VMs and I had a problem with a user logon. I enter a valid username/password but it was not working. I am sure capslock is not pressed. I ended up changing the password for that user account from Active directory users and computers. Anyway, if that happens in real life, what are the things I should check before resetting the password?

    Another issue is slow logon, I noticed that with some users in my office (even though they don't have a lot of items on their desktop, start menu, etc) what could be the reason of slow logon?

    In many cases this can be caused by a DNS issue. The clients should be configured to resolve DNS from a DC at the same site if this is possible.

    Actually, DC is located in the same site and this slow logon happens with 2 or 3 users others can logon normally

    Have you checked the DNS settings on the 2-3 users PCs? Also have you checked the event logs?

    All client computers get DNS configurations from DHCP server. Anyway, I used ipconfig /all to make sure it gets the appropriate DNS server IP address.

    Event log ...ok, I'll google the records that have the exclamation mark. I hope that I can find the reason.

    Thanks for your help

    Could it be a roaming profile issue, I cant remember if it uploads and downloads the profile even if they are using the same pc? perhaps someone has a huge PST file in their profile or large folder of holiday snaps. if its only 2-3 users and everyone else is alright I might have a look at this.

    Perhaps check to see if the users have a roaming profile - if so check the size and location of it.
