Login can run slowly when you configure User Environment Manager to manage files in folders while also configuring those folders for redirection.

Problem

Login runs slowly, and logout might also run slowly.

Cause

If you configure User Environment Manager to manage files in folders while simultaneously configuring these folders for redirection, the files are copied to and from the network multiple times, causing delays and slow login times. This happens most commonly with the AppData and Favorites folders. An indication that you have encountered this problem is if you see these folders redirected in the export at logoff section of the log files. For example:

[DEBUG]    Redirected folders: AppData, Desktop, Favorites, Personal

Solution

  1. Ensure that you have not configured folder redirection for folders managed by User Environment Manager; or, ensure that you do not use User Environment Manager to manage files in these folders.
