    Windows 7 GPO issue

    Hi all,

    Not sure if this is the best section for this but here goes.

    I'm having an odd issue with windows 7 client computers applying GPO's in the school I work at.
    When users first log on the user GPO isn't always applied, if the user logs out and in again the policy is applied.
    This only happens on my Windows 7 Machines.

    Background:
    Server = 2003 Standard 32
    Affected Clients = Windows 7 Pro 32
    GPO's are set up with separate computer and User GPO (different GPO for Pupil and Staff). Other GPO's apply items such as printer settings software and some scripts.
    Additional - my logon scripts contains the GPUPDATE command which may help the second logon.

    Any Ideas??

    Thanks

    Event Viewer is the place to start. If not Application/System logs, certainly in the Applications and Services > Microsoft > Windows > Group Policy > Operational Log. You may see something stand out, or you may have to compare a first (bad) logon to a second (successful) logon.

    Could be anything, tbh - there's a smorgasbord of hotfixes for such situations dependent upon your exact setup. Getting the Event IDs will massively narrow down what's actually going on.

    Also, I find running rsop.msc from the run cmd can be very helpful to see exactly what is happenning on a client.

    May be a good excuse to upgrade to 2008 r2

    Thanks so far all, its a bit of a paint to look at as it happens randomly too. just managed to look a one of the pc logs and it appears to be ID: 510.

    Just changed a couple of settings:
    enabled 'Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon'
    loopback processing mode was disabled changed to not configured

    will see how this goes.
    I'd love to update to 2008 if I can get any money from the SMT!
