group policy for laptop users

By degnan ·
Here's my dilemma:
If I connect to work via Cisco VPN client from a personal machine, everythings great. If I connect via a work laptop (joined to Win2k3 domain), performance is horribly slow. I imagine it is because I have My Documents/Application Data/Desktop redirected to a network share at work via group policy. What I am trying to figure out is how to set it up so the users redirection policies are denied, but only on certain machines (laptops). Any ideas?

Hi

Create a new OU at your Active Directory, move all laptops to this new OU. Create the new GPO with the new rules and apply it to this OU.

Hope this can help.

No, that doesn't really help. My problem is that I need a machine policy that affects user settings, which i'm not sure is possible.

Why do you think that a laptop works different than a desktop PC?

I think that not the folder redirection is the problem! (I use both laptop and desktop without problems on our network)

Check the differences between laptop and desktop settings.

Why do i think a laptop works different than a desktop? Because the desktops don't leave work and go on the road and connect via vpn. If everyone was locally connected there would be no issue

So, you see now that not the policy regarding the redirecting the My documents is the issue!

A desktop PC and a laptop should work the same when they are on LAN. For the same resources (CPU, mem, etc.) the same performance.

Check the policy/profile regarding VPN/LAN!
