windows nt domain is not available for ~2min at startup

Reported by: isrc Owned by:

Hi, I've setup virtualbox on windows xp hosts which are part of a windows nt domain (the PDC is a FreeBSD/Samba box) and i'm experiencing a weird issue. After cold booting the host, our users must wait 2min before being able to log in with their domain account credentials. The error message from windows xp said that the "<our_domain_name> is not availabe" ! Of course, 2 minutes later, one can successfully log in to the domain. So the issue isn't with the guest but with the host and only after a cold boot. Subsequent boot doesn't trigger this issue. I'm running a pretty standard samba configuration (witout a wins server) and the host without virtualbox doesn't have this problem.

I guess that it must be related to the virtual network interface created by virtualbox at installation time. And actually, disabling the bridged network interface "fix" it.

I'm wondering if some of you are experiencing the same issue please and how you fixed it eventually :-) ?

Thanks !
