Hi

Ok so we have rolled out our first site today. So our main site and site2 which is the remote site are up and running. Just some strange things happening. When goto use GPMC from the remote site it takes absolutely ages for anything come up. And also if i create a logon script and attach it to a OU within AD it will not run at the remote site. If i look at gpresult it tells me that it ran but it never maps any drives

any ideas?

At the remote site, copy the login script locally and run it. What happens?

what i really want to make sure here is that any gp''s that i create and link to an ou that user and computer accounts actually reside in the remote site get their gp's from the correct server ie the dc for that site and dont come over the wan link's back to main site to get their gp's as this would be a nightmare and really slow

cheers
