Yesterday we had a powercut. Because of this we shutdown all our servers. Last night we powered it all on and everything now works but one thing. Group policy it not applying settings. I have done a gpresult and the policy shows up there but the only way for it to kick in is to run gpupdate /force.
Nothing shows in the event logs of servers or clients.
We have the clients setup to wait for the network on startup.
DNS and replication is running just fine without any problems.
We are running Server 2008 Enterprise Domain at 2008 level with XP clients
Does anyone have any thoughts?
PS: the user policy applies fine, it is the computer policy with the problem

Double check all DNS Servers?
Give all servers a reboot, force replication
Done that, reboot and replication. and DNS seems fine
Just thought i would update. I am still having problems. I know its not DNS now and have rebooted all the DC's again and still no joy. Replication is going fine and still nothing in the event logs
Its abit odd this one
have you tried wait for network setting as a new gpo and placed that so it applys first?
yep no joy
so are none of the gpo applying or just certain ones, loopback mode?
If it's happening on all the clients then it must be something wrong with the servers. What does a full dcdiag show? Are the permissions on sysvol correct?
I have had a look this morning, i created a new policy and deployed LanSchool MSI. Rebooted the machines and the MSI installed fine. I also impored some ADM templates to set the chanel number.
They are the same policy as the software deployment but will only apply with a gpupdate /force.
It used to work flawlessly before using the same templates
why is this?

I was under the impression that GPO updates happened every x hours (I think the default is 24) +/- a random amount of time (I think the default is upto 45min). These setting can be changed in a GPO.
Could it be the machine was outside of it's scheduled GPO refresh time and thus you had to gpupdate /force to get it going?
Have you tried a dcdiag and a netdiag and see if you get any errors.
Also have you tried rebooting the switch or switches switches sometimes have a wobbler with power surges.
I think the group policy refresh interval is under Computer Configuration, Administrative Templates, System, Group Policy in gpo
