We have a Windows 2003 Terminal Server, All user connect to the server over the internet with Remote Desktop.

All the users are in a Organistion Unit with a group policy.

The policy is working for the users that already exists in de active directory.

When i make a new user, and the user log-in the terminal server, sometimes the group policy is not working.
When the user log-off and for the second time log-on. The group policy is working.

I want tha the group policy is working when the user the first time log-on.

I have tried gpudate and gpudate /force, after creating the new user, but this is nog always working.

    Try this by creating a standard user in the container where the users are in, then log on to that user a couple of times until the policy applies to him. Then logoff from that new user and make hime inactive. Now whenever you create a new user, use that standard user as a template (make a copy for the new user). I hope this resolves your problem.
