Group Policy not processed on wireless clients, ideas?
Posted on 2008-10-29
We have wireless clients that are failing to retrieve group policy settings.
Basically it comes down to the fact that the wireless connection isn't really getting authenticated and establishing a network connection until after the user logs on, so group policy processing is aborted because "no domain controller can be found".
Makes sense overall, but what ways can I use to ensure group policy settings (like software deployment, computer startup scripts, etc.) get processed by these wireless clients? Is there a way to get the wireless to authenticate prior to CTRL-ALT-DEL?
I do have the group policy setting "Wait for network before login" enabled but hasn't done anything for these guys. (not even sure if they are getting it anyway.lol)
