I added a logon script to an existing GPO that I would like to run immediately on all clients (because users need it), so I am about to mail everyone: please logoff and on again. When doing the usual test, I noticed, that the script did not run. rsop.msc showed, that the old revision of the policy was still effective although prior to this, I had verified that both DCs had successfully replicated the new revision. After a gpupdate /force /target:user, and logging off/on, the script ran. I reproduced the problem on other PCs afterwards.
Question: MS documentation says on http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc757597(WS.10).aspx
"In addition to background updates, Group Policy for users is always updated when they log on."
Did this change with vista? I don't think so. So what could be the problem, why would gpupdate not recognize the new revision of the policy at logon?
Clients are on vista sp2, DC is 2008 SP2.
