I am logging into a machine on a domain as a user who is in an OU we have named Managed Users, which has Group Policy of roaming profile.

Logging on as the user, it can't find the user's roaming profile. When logged in (albeit a local version), and try to run gpupdate, the following error happens:

Group Policy Error. INFO: The group policy object does not exist

Any idea why this might be happening? Are there certain things I should double check in the GP Editor? Other users of the domain are not in this Managed Users OU, and they can login fine (with roaming profiles, etc)
