Shortcut Deployment Using GPP
We're currently allocating shortcuts to the users via GPP on a user level. This works quite well, except that it takes a few seconds to allocate the shortcuts every time the user logs on. I was interested in moving these over to be allocated on computer level, so they are only applied once every time the machine is turned on, but the shortcuts don't appear for the user unless we first delete their roaming profile. After deleting their roaming profile they can log on and see the shortcuts at assigned at computer level, but any changes aren't shown until their profile is deleted again.
At user level any changes are reflected as soon as the user logs on or runs a gpupdate if already logged on.
So, if you allocate your shortcuts using GPP, and do it on the computer section rather than the user section, do you experience the same of having to delete the profile for changes or is there something wrong with my setup?
Like I say, I'm using a test shortcut pointing to Google. The machines I've tested have been restarted to pick up the computer level preferences, and I log on with no change. Log off, delete the roaming profile so it will create a new one, and then when I log on again the shortcut appears.
