The solution seems to be to cache the user info locally instead of it having to 
query the domain controller everytime.

Ah yes: here’s a better expressed post: http://bjg.io/guide/cygwin-ad/

I did the following

  *   commented out the “db” part for passwd and group in 
c:/msys64/etc/nsswitch.conf, to give this:

# Begin /etc/nsswitch.conf



passwd: files #db

group: files #db



db_enum: cache builtin



db_home: windows

db_shell: cygwin desc

db_gecos: cygwin desc



# End /etc/nsswitch.conf


  *   Note that I also set db_home to ‘windows’, so that it gets my windows 
home directory.  I think an explicit path would also be OK
  *   However I discovered that having just “files” for “passwd” in 
nsswitch.conf means that ssh looks in c:/msys64/etc/passwd to find the home 
directory for .ssh, totally ignoring the $HOME environment variable, and 
ignoring the db_home setting.
  *   But there IS no /etc/passwd file!   So I created one

mkpasswd -c > /etc/passwd

mkgroup -c > /etc/group

And then I manually edited /etc/passwd to put in the correct home directory.

What a saga!


Is it faster now?  Hard to tell.

Hi Simon,

Hmm I'm not sure about replacing sh with bash. I think bash has some Non-POSIX 
extensions that may affect the behavior of valid posix scripts.

Is bash --login slow as well? How about once sh or bash starts, are commands 
still slow then?

I assume your computer is domain joined and you may be hitting a very long 
standing issue with certain domain joined machines

Does that help the problem?

I believe you had a similar problem last time setting up a new machine. At that 
time magit was also slow.

Kind regards,
Tamar

I’ve noticed that “sh” (which is invoked at lot by make etc) takes AGES to 
start up.  At least I think it’s ‘sh’ that is causing the delay.
I think it’s c:/msys64/usr/bin/sh.exe
From searching the web (eg 
https://www2.cs.duke.edu/csl/docs/unix_course/intro-60.html<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww2.cs.duke.edu%2Fcsl%2Fdocs%2Funix_course%2Fintro-60.html&data=02%7C01%7Csimonpj%40microsoft.com%7C185492e20be9494ebdf008d599282bcd%7C72f988bf86f141af91ab2d7cd011db47%7C1%7C0%7C636583320164876915&sdata=74ecRU4VAdzlHW1Tjul6VEqdxsEsnd7xBSYnMoYsqfg%3D&reserved=0>)
  it seems likely that it executes c:/msys64/etc/profile first.
And If I put an ‘echo’ at the start and end of that file, they do seem to take 
place with a significant gap between them.
I have not started sprinkling more echos, but does that ring any bells?
Can I replace ‘sh’ with c:/msys64/usr/bin/bash.exe, which seems to be faster?   
(My evnt variable SHELL already points to bash.exe. )  And if so, how would I 
do that? An environment variable.  Physically copy bash.exe to sh.exe?  Or what?
Thanks
Simon
