Event 1054 – Userenv
This is my site Written by Grant on May 22, 2010 – 12:38 pm

At a customer I was RXing this event – 1054 on Userenv

Event ID: 1054
Source: Userenv
Type: Error
Description:
Windows cannot obtain the domain controller name for your computer network. (The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted). Group Policy processing aborted.
The client computer may also experience an extremely slow logon.

 

Solution:

I used Group Policy Object Editor (Gpedit.msc) to modify “Group Policy slow link detection” on the server at both “Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Group Policy” and “User Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Group Policy”.  I enabled it and set the value to 0 (zero) which disables link detection.

 Also check DNS entries, and NIC binding order with multi-head machines
