You are using Exclaimer Signature Manager Outlook Edition and you notice that the ExSync.exe deployment is delayed when deployed via GPO.
When using Remote Desktop services in a Server 2012 R2 environment, by default login scripts deployed via GPO are delayed from executing by 5 minutes - this is to create a responsive desktop environment.
This could cause a delay for new users logging on for the first time from receiving an email signature or prevent existing users from receiving signatures updates during logon.
To avoid this behaviour:
- Configure the group policy setting as per below:
Setting Path: Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/System/Group Policy
Setting Name: Configure Logon Script Delay
Supported On: At least Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows 8.1 or Windows RT 8.1
Changing the policy setting to 0 will disable the policy setting and the policy will run logon scripts immediately during logon.
