long delay in workstation service startup

Does anyone have any suggestions for resolving a long (5
minute) delay in starting up the workstation service. I
have TCP/IP protocol loaded and have tried removing and
re-installing the NIC with the latest drivers.

Steve,
Turn off DHCP and statically set you ip/sub/gateway/dns and you will see
your boot times increase.

Hi Sean,

Thanks for your quick response and suggestion. I assume
that you meant that my boot time will decrease rather
than increase. I will certainly try setting a static
ip address on the workstation and router, but are you
sure that DHCP results in delays up to 5 minutes long?

If changing it to static ip addresses does not resolve
the issue, is there anything else that I should try?

Appreciate your help!!!

Hi Sean,

I have now tried turning off DHCP and setting a static ip
etc. Unfortunately, it did not make any difference.
Any other suggestions?

Thanks

Steve

Steve,
This could be a lot of things. Try looking at your services (services.msc)
and see if any of them say starting and not started. If you see one that
says starting then the service is really hung up; sometimes if you change a
username or password this will affect some of your services. If none are
saying starting, then you might try turning them off one by one and
rebooting the machine, this may help determine if a service is the problem.
Outside of that you might try bootvis; this analyzes you boot process and
you may be able to determine where or what process is hanging you up.
