GPO on newly added computers
Hi, I manage a 2003 server with several xp clients in an infants school. The exisiting system was fine, and I had a 'students' GPO which included folder redirection to set the desktop icons and startmenu, as well as my documents. It all works fine on the existing network, no problems.
However! We recently had a company install some new PCs (all XP Pro too). They work well, and are nice and fast. They are added to the network (belong to the doman), and show up in active directory. The new pcs belong in the same security group as the old class pcs.
The problem is that the folder redirection is not being applied. I have run gpresult on the new pcs, and it says the studentpolicy is being applied, but clearly not. Folder redirection is not there (the start menu, my docs, desktop, classic look of the start menu etc are all like a default profile, not like my student policy dictates). Looking at the 'properties' of 'My Computer' on the new pcs tells me that the profile is mandatory.
BTW, this is all logged in as a student, not administrator. WHen logging in as as student for the first time (eg user 'class1'), it tells me that the roaming profile can not be found (access is denied), although the users haven't changed in active directory, and it all works on the old pcs.
Any ideas of what I need to do to the new pcs to make them work like the old pcs? It's driving me nuts.
Mnay thanks in advance for reading this far!
Uninstall SP3 when it has been slipstreamed?
Still no joy. Have made sure about the security groups and OUs being correct. AD settings seem the same for the old and new pcs- can't see any difference. Does make me think SP3 may have something to do with it.
Anyway to uninstall Sp3 when it seems to have been splistreamed into XP Pro (and hence not installed as an update?).
Thanks in advance!
