GPO and Logon Scripts mystery

Here's the deal...  I originally added a user logon script to the default domain policy this seemed to work.  But now I have organized my users in a master OU with sub OU's.  I created new policies and I'm fairly competent and have them running in right order with inheretance and what not.  The problem is that now no user logon script wants to execute when a user logs onto a machine.  The policy does get applied in all cases but 1, my account with admin rights; just seems to ignore it after the change.

So I went back and added a script to the default policy again seeing if it would work, NADA.

Any suggestions questions or advice?

Where is your account being ignored?  On a workstation, on the server ?

Where is your account located?  What built-in security groups is your account part of?

On the workstations.  I just logged onto a DC and a GPO was applied along with specified logon script.

Also, it was the DC GPO that ran...    Once I changed the DC GPO back to default the OU GPO wasn't ran, even when logging in on the server.

Sounds like you made the changes on the Default Domain Controller Policy instead of the Default Domain Policy.

Found the solution.  I had to restore the DC policy and Domain policy to original (which was painful), then i resolved many of net logon and dns  issues which i found lurking in the event log.  There were also issues with SID mappings, got that resolved.  Now everything works fine.
