Group Policy not applying to some computers

By sostermann ·
We have a Windows 2K3 domain with Windows 2000 clients. A couple of the clients are not receiving all of their GP settings.

All GP settings are contained in one policy object.

Using gpresult on the non-updating users show that the policy was applied correctly:

"The user receivced "Registry settings from thse GPO's: xxxxxxx"

However, the computer is using local group policy settings:

"The computer received "Registry" settings from thse GPOs: Local Group policy

The non-updating computers are in the same container as the updating computers.

Are the gpresults indicating local group policy updates where the problem lies?

Any other ideas?

GPO not updating

by blain.s.andrew In reply to I'd like to know too

Me three,

I am having issues even after preforming the "gpupdate /force" command. It ALWAYS seems to want to reboot when I issue this command; and yet no changes are made when I issue the command "gpresult".

Please someone help!

Setting might be causing it

I know that when applying some settings the and running the force command that it will ask you to log out. I know for sure this always happened if I had a folder redirection policy applied.
