The previous kinetics of the two-dimensional diluted Ising antiferromagnet Rb2Co0.85Mg0.15F4 is studied via the temporal relaxation of the field-induced magnetization after field cooling (FC) and zero-field cooling (ZFC), respectively, to T < TN = 75.2K. After FC different non-exponential decay laws indicate a crossover from domain reorientation to wall rearrangement at decreasing T. After ZFC rapidly saturating magnetization of naturally grown domain walls precedes the slow random-field-controlled disordering process.
