Hi all,
I have a server 2003 server as a DC, all my Active directory PC uses GPO to add specific icons on the desktop, lately i notice it takes 5 to 6 log in before the icon appears on te desktop, also i change one of the icon that is pointing to Java sever we have to run certain Java apps. I change the IP in the target of the icon so all the PC's icon get change at log in form the GPO but they dont ?? Is there anything i need to restart when I do a change in the GPO ??

Try enabling this Group Policy element to see if it fixes it.

Computer Configuration>Administrative Templates>System>Logon ::

Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon = Enabled.

This forces XP to wait for the Network before logging in.  Your policies should apply first time around after this takes effect.

Create a new GPO and link it at the domain level.

How long does it takes to take effect ?? I change that setting on the server and it is still not loading the right icons on my desktop.

Thank you

Generally, one reboot.

I guess we need to know exactly how you are pushing out the shortcuts - please be specific so we can determine if something isn't quite right there.
