Slow System Performance with the CRL Check (Via joel)

Extracted from the original post.

Sometimes you need to install SharePoint 2010 in an environment where the servers do not have an effective Internet connection. This posses a big problem.

Most Microsoft assemblies and DLLs are digitally signed. Each time signed assemblies are loaded, default system behaviour is to check with the owner of the root certificate that the cert with which the assembly was signed is still valid. In the case of Microsoft assemblies, this means “phoning home” to read the Certificate Revocation List at crl.microsoft.com .

Whilst this is all very well and good if you have an Internet connection, sometimes you don’t have this luxury. Many web servers, for instance, don’t have outbound Internet accessibility. The CRL check will attempt to connect to Microsoft’s servers and then timeout, usually within 30-60 seconds.
