GPO problems with server after 2008 migration

We've recently migrated from 2003 SBS to 2008 SBS.

All GPOs are working just fine on every client computer. There's this member server though which was ok until we demoted the 2003 server.  Folder redirection GPO is not applying on the server for no user (shows as Filtering:  Denied (Security) on gpresult)

Not only that, there's another GPO which is not even showing as applied nor filtered on gpresult.
Both GPOS apply correctly on any other machine on the domain. I just moved the server to the SBSservers OU without any result.

Another strange thing is on gprsult output information about the computer or user are not showing (name, ou, etc) . See bellow.

Have no clue why this is happening and would really appreciate any help.
Thanks a lot.

Heres the gpuresult output:

Hi,
I'm suprised that the member server is not a member of 'domain computers'. On the GP policy itself, what groups are set for the policy to apply to?

Well, just checked on aduc an the server is member of domain computers. Doesnt show as a member of that group on gpresult output.

The GPOs scopes are "authenticated users" for the logon scripts GPO and "windows SBS Folder redirection Accounts" group for the folder redirection policy.

I disjoined the server from the domain, restarted a few times, rjoined and nothing happened.
Also deleted all the profiles.

Now I run gpresult and get "the user does not have RSOP data" ?!

Im totally out of ideas.

Please, help.

No results with rsop.msc either. It says that the possible reason is because computer and user policies might have not been not processed, an thats absolutely whats happening and I dont know why.

So now no single GPO is being applied.

Solved.

The old server was the only DNS server listed on this machine. Changed it to the new SBS and everythings now fine.
