    Re: software deployment

    Hello

    I had the same problem with ALL of my laptops (50 for them) the guy that helped me said it was related to the network card and thankfully he had the same problem shortly before mine.

    I believe it is related to the network card which does not initialise in time, before updating the GPO?

    I applied the following reg change to all of them and they work after a gpupdate /force and a reboot

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]

    "GPNetworkStartTimeoutPolicyValue"=dword:0000003c

    Yep, I've had this too. Software deployments are in the machine policy, and if the network card is slow to initialize and isn't up by the time windows requests the machine policy it won't be updated.

    Re: software deployment

    the trouble is i have tried to deploy this key but it does not seem to work i thought that a gpo reg upate did not need a restart to apply but i may be wrong as it look like i have got a few more machines and i was going to deploy the reg key to sort the problem out. anyone know if this will work.

    Re: software deployment

    Have you tried running the

    gpupdate /force

    command as roland mentioned? This command will get the GPO's from your server, apply the require ones and tell you if you are require to reboot.

    Are you guys running cisco switches per chance?
