    remove seetings from old group policy

    hello all, i have had major problems this week, server with fsmo roles died, i siezed the roles to a different domain controller and took the broken one offline (never to return) part of the problem now is that it appears that group policy did not sync up properly prior to its demise.

    The result and the problem is that some user groups now are not getting their redirected desktops which are based around usergroups as it it looking for a policy setting which is on the old server, i have tried to implictly change the location of the redirected startmenus desktops etc but it still insists on searching the old server for them.

    I'm absolutley lost as to how to proceed as its a group name that can't be changed.
    has anyone any ideas???
    thanks as always in advance

    You could create a new policy on the OU and delete the old policy.
    Check on the workstation that they have no profiles stuck on them if you are using roaming profiles and then do a gpupdate /force on the workstation and reboot.
    Also, check that the old server isn't still in DNS.

    Have you removed all traces of the machine from AD, DNS etc?

    the old policy does not exist, there is no trace of any settings left that are applied to this user group this is the problem, i have created a new policy and forced update still no joy? dns settings all point to new the server.
