Problems after SBS 2008 migration


We've endup migrating from SBS 2003 to SBS 2008. Everything looks good except for a member server which looks not to be processing some GPOs.

gpupdate or gpresult take forever, however the results point to the new server, but not all the GPOs are being processed. We get redirected folders errors, still pointing to the old server.And mapped drives are not there, looks like logon scripts are not being processed.

Can it be any computer specific GPO keeping user GPOs from being processed ?

Check the event log for errors & run dcdiag to verify dc health.

For folder redirection look below kb.

No, its not on SBSServers OU. But it wasnt previously either. Should this make a difference on SBS 2008 ?

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Yes...an number GPs are applied at that level, just like all workstations are expected to be in the SBSComputers OU for the default GPs to work

No luck

Changed the computer to MyBusiness\SBSServer OU but nothing changed.
Here's gpresult ouput.
Besides GPOs filtered and listed here there are some GPOs note being listed even as filtered
For example the logon scripts GPO which works for all users on other computers.
