    IIRC there is a setting that forces computers to update the policies at startup, before the logon box appears. This increases boot time but should achieve the desired result.

    I cannot remember what the setting is though. Get the spreadsheet from the MS site.

    I think what you're after is:
    Computer Config/Admin Templates/System/Logon/Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon:Enabled.
