GPO applies to 2000 servers but not 2003 servers in the same OU

Because we are doing some testing with our apps, we are using half 2000 Terminal Servers and half 2003. I have implemented the policies as instrcuted above. All Servers are in the same OU. The 2000 servers have the policies loaded, but the 2003 do not. I even tried doing a gpupdate /force, but I check with gpresult that it doesn't apply - any reason why?

what are the settings in the GPO for those servers?

Not evey setting is compatible with both 2000 and 2003....

I first have a loopback policy, so that I can get users portion of the policy to affect them only when they log into the terminal servers (this is not applied), second I have several users policies, but I believ if I get the loopback to apply, the users one will follow.

any WMI-filters used for filtering GPO's perhaps?

works like a champ on the 5 2000 servers, but not on any of the 5 2003 - again all in the same OU

when you say the GPO's are not applied , do you mean that gpresult shows the gpo is applied but th settings do not show for the user , or does gpresult show the gpo is not applied at all?

if you use group policy management console , you might get more info on what is happening:

gpresult shows that they are not applied nor are they filtered out.

As for the settings, their are a lot, mostly to lock things down, but again if the loopback policy never gets applied, then none of these even matter.

I figured it out - I have Network Load Balancing on these servers. Once I disabled the NIC and rebooted it applied. I then enabled it and everything still works. I'll give you the points for trying to help at least.
