    ahh the clock problem! easy way to eliminate is put a net time command in startup/login script and the computer is never out of time by to much!

    As above, inserting:

    Code:
    net time \\SERVERNAME /set /yes
    in your logon scripts avoids these problems and keeps all machines in sync with your primary DC.

    Hi Everyone

    I have just created a new windows 7 image and have ghosted it and joined it to the domain and it trys to install msi's in the group policy but it does no. The event viewer says it was processed and gpresult says it was processed but not it is applying printer and proxy settings.

    Did anyone come up with a solution for this.

    I will try and restart the server and swicthes in the morning to see if thay helps as a load of windows updates have come out resently but the stragnge thing is the windows xp machines are not having this problem.
    I have found this link to a hotfix but have not tried it.
    Windows 7 Clients intermittently fail to apply group policy at startup

    Has anyone got any suggestions?

    Thanks for all your help.

    Richard

    I have tested replication and net and dcdiag. nothing

    I have checked the eventviewer and cannot see anything on the server or client.

    Have placed the computer in a new ou with a new gpo created on a server 2008 server to deploy one program and it will not work.

    I have knocked the machine off the domain and put it back and it applies the user policies but will not install any msi's

    I am getting a gpo core error.

    Has anyone got any ideas
    Richard

    if you navigate to the msi from the workstation will it install by hand?
