I have 3 locations with one DC (Win SBS 2003). Offices are connected via VPN routers (Netgear FVS318 Prosafe). My DC at main location is DHCP server, routers are DHCP server at each remote site. I have them all on the domain, DNS is set as the DC. Connect ok although very slow for the first while, I understand this to be normal until all permissions are applied.
For the problem, It is not applying Group Policies. I built some of the systems at my main location were DC is and they had all Policies applied at the time, some were built at remote sites. When started at remote site, some policies were lost, and those built there will not acquire them. Example, I enforce the firewall and setup my VNC port through Group Policy. When the machine was moved, firewall is still enforced, VNC port isn't. New machines are not getting anything. I ran gpresult and get INFO: The policy object does not exist. Strange thing is, it runs my logon scripts at the locations, it took a few reboots before it would, but does 90% of the time now. I have added new DHCP scopes on DC to show other IP ranges. Each office has it's own, 192.168.0.*, 192.168.1.*,192.168.2.* Still no luck. I ran Specops Gpupdate and get offline or firewalled.
Is there something I am missing. Is there anything extra I have to set on the DC to allow the different IP ranges or Group Policy of VPN?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Been searching here for a while and read a bit about slow connections but haven't found where to change it.
