Im having an issue with GPO's

Last Modified: 2013-11-25
Thanks in advance...

Hey experts, Im having some issues this morning with some GPO policies i set over the weekend.  Our original issue was that there were multiple users using multiple locations for file storage (ie, some had My Docs on local machine, some had it on File Server, some had it on Old file server, etc).  So I wanted to centralize the locations to our new file server.  I migrated all their folders from wherever they were to the new server and set a GPO on the DomainUser Container for \\server\sharename\%USERNAME%.

And this morning i have 50% users on old server still, 50% on C: drive still, and i have found 2 users that the Change worked for???

I have had all the users reboot their machines, but still have wrong My Doc locations.  What did I miss?  How can i trouble shoot where the issue lay?

Any help will be awesome.
