    I recently replaced a 2003 server in a small 10-15 user office.. The problem we are having is that when a user starts his local computer, initially they can not log onto the domain it says domain server cannot be found!! If they wait 3-4 minutes after the get to the CTRL ALT DEL then they can logon. This is an annoyance as nobody want to wait in this world of immediate gratification!!
    The server is set to hand out IP addresses
    it is a P4 2.4GHZ
    2 sata 80gb raid drives

    the server seems to be running fine and once connected there are no problems
    Internet is running fine

    And Ideas????

    You should have migrated all of the AD schema from the old server to the new. YOu may have to go around and add all of the computers to the domain again.

    On top of that you may want to look at DNS of the clients if you used a different IP and they have the old IP on their PC's this too can cause login delays.

    I think both these suggestions are good places to check.

    Also, you have to make sure that DHCP is handing out all the relevent DNS info to each machine. DNS can (if not configured correctly) can cause login problems.
