Delay Occurs When Unlocking Workstation


Windows NT4 will update the domain list if the cached list’s age exceeds two
minutes (by default). This feature is beneficial to users from a newly trusted
domain who need to log on to workstations or servers that have been locked by a
previous user. Adjusting the following registry entry allows modification to the
time period in which the domain list becomes out-of-date. The valid range for
this entry is 2 minutes (default) to 1 day, specified in the number of seconds.
Note that modifying this value could result in users not seeing the current
domain list.
Hive: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Key: Software\Microsoft\Windows
NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Name: DcacheMinInterval
Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 120-86400(decimal expressed in seconds)
