GPUpdate /force hangs and empty desktop while offline
Posted on 2009-02-12
LAPTOP: HP 8230 ; XP SP3 eng.
NETWORK: 2DCs Windows server 2003 SP2 Std
I have a big problem with a laptop on my network. It is the second case like that. For the first case, I just reinstalled the laptrop without loosing too much time on the problem. But now, I think that this may be on the server side...
I think that the GPOs containing settings for the "computer" section are not being applied. Also, when I am logged with a network user account and I launch gpupdate /force it hangs. (but It works well in safe mode)
I also have problem when I want to use the same laptop offline. I can't logging well. Rught after I enter my credentials, the system wait wait wait with an empty desktop and a mouse cursor (that I can move)... The local user for this computer can login while offline.
I verified the Secure Channel using nltest.exe and the results looks fine.
Can someone help me please....
Thank you so much!
