First logon doesn't load GP...
Our new Windows 7 computers seem to have a weird problem;
We built up a working Windows 7 image. When we put that image onto the other computers, it all works fine. We change the name, configure one or two other little changes and reboot. Then we join the domain, and turn it off. Move the computer account into the correct GPO, and boot the PC up again.
When the PC comes back on, and we log on with any working account, it doesn't load the user group policy. Logging off and back on immediately, and it works. It then works perfectly, seemingly forever more! It's only that first time we log on.
I am to run a gpresult on the PC when I have reloaded the ghost image.
