Re: Windows 10 does not always find tree or server during login or map the login script.

Are your clients configured with the SLP-DA and the scope? 

If they aren't told about them, then they hunt a very different way.

Re: Windows 10 does not always find tree or server during login or map the login script.

I'm sure you're aware of this, but just for the records. In the current (i.e. newer than XP) architecture DHCP clients need their SLP info (DAs, scope, mandatory flag) via DHCP either. Clients configured with static addressing need to have SLP info configured statically. This behaviour is contrary to how the XP client worked (with more sophisticated proprietary code) where e.g. a "static" box could still ask for SLP stuff via DHCP.

Do you have a link to the documentation explaining what options and their values we should be configuring on our Microsoft DHCP server?

Re: Windows 10 does not always find tree or server during login or map the login script.

My experince with Windows 10 is, that despite setting anything to wait for the network being fully up, Windows 10 shows you the Logon/Login screen at times where the network is not up or worse if you have a multihomed system, when only a part of the network is up. The latter ( as in almost every laptop with a WLAN card) is a real showstopper, because Windows 10 then resets its network settings to the half up network and mantains that for a period of time ( i neve found out how log that is and where it is specified) even if the rest of the network is fully up 10 seconds later.

My personal solution to this problem is to check the network icon shown on the logon/login screen till I see, that the Network necessary for logon/login is up and immediately afterwards logon I logon/login. But this is far from being good.

Re: Windows 10 does not always find tree or server during login or map the login script.

Thanks for the reply..and I agree it is far from being good for most people. It is the same as telling them to not immediately login but wait a minute. That's usually about 10 seconds and they go ahead and try and have the problem.  Oh well.
