Please wait while setup creates the domain list...

Wow, have I ever seen a more annoying popup message that won't go away? I have been seeing this message for a long time... it occurs after I join a computer to the domain, restart, and when I am hit with the login box to select the domain... it comes up after I click the dropdown to select it.

Sometimes... it appears real quick and goes away. Sometimes... it stays up for 15+ minutes without doing anything... and the other times it doesn't come up at all! What gives??

That happens from time to time, can't quite recall the cause and I believe it's only a one time thing - i.e. after a successful login it will go away.

As a workaround, you can hit CTRL + ALT + DEL to stop the list from building. In most cases, the domain you need to access will be available.


Woah.. I'm still here?

usually this is an issue with DNS config on the client. Do you have the client pointing to the domain controller as it's primary DNS?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
