SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a client computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.
  • The client computer is assigned to an Active Directory site that only has a read-only domain controller (RODC).
  • You implement one or more Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) filters in some Group Policy Preferences (GPP) settings. These GPP settings apply to the computer or to the user account that you use to log on to the domain that is hosted by the RODC.
  • You log on to the domain from the client computer.
In this scenario, you experience a significant delay when you start or logon to the client computer. This delay occurs while the GPP settings are processed.

Typically, the delay is more severe if one or more of the following conditions are true.
  • There are many LDAP filters that are implemented in the GPP settings.
  • There are many attributes that are returned by the LDAP query.
  • There are many read/write domain controllers (RWDCs) in other Active Directory sites that the client computer can connect to.

CAUSE

This issue occurs because Active Directory Service Interfaces (ADSI) is used to implement LDAP item-level filtering in the GPP settings. By default, ADSI requests a RWDC as a target.

RESOLUTION

After you apply this hotfix, an RODC can be used as the target of the ADSI - LDAP query.
