    Group policies not updating

    Hi Guys

    I have just put a new workstation on the network and connected to the domain.

    Put it in the correct OU and forced a gpupdate

    Rebooted, rebooted again, gpupdate again ect ect..........

    But its not picking up any of the msi's to install. Its finding the logon script as all mapped drives and printers and there.

    Any idea what could be stopping this.

    Thanks

    Cooper

    share permissions?

    view the logs to see what the error messages are.

    try importing the following reg file on one of them makes the pc wait a bit longer before abandoning looking for policies (assuming xp pcs not tried on vista/2k)

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
    "GpNetworkStartTimeoutPolicyValue"=dword:00000 03c

    Well, the first place to look is your event viewer logs on the computer you're working with, as well as running GPresult from a command line. I would imagine the GPresult will show that the GPO policy is applied.

    In my experience, when an app fails to apply via GP, it's either a permissions issue on the source location, the source for the package was set to local drives instead of UNC (i.e. d:\shared\apps instead of \\server\shared\apps), or a problem with the Windows Installer service.

    The Eventviewer should tell you something useful though. Check in Applications.

    GL!
