GPO not assigned to one computer for logon script

Hi experts,

Group policy does not seem go control one computer of the eight that I have. I have SBS 2008 and all XP Pro computers. The computer works fine, is one the domain and can network with the server with no issues.

I have done the Group Policy Results for each computer and user for comparison, and there are some errors in a few of them. I can also run an RSoP.

In the Group Policy Management in the Default Domain Policy under Scope, it lists the that Domain Admins and Domain Users are in the Security Filtering, but the WMI filtering is set to none. There is a selection for Windows XP Clients, but I don't know why that would help if most of the computers are working any.

Thanks for any help.

GPO, not applying can be because of many reason it can NIC issue, permission issue, corruption on system files or antivirus is not letting it to apply or might be Virus issue.

As, you said its applying except one system, it looks to be more system related than GPO error but for your confirmation you can use gpotool.exe to check health of GPO & also make sure replication is working fine & dc is not reporting the error.

You can also use gpupdate /force cmd on client machine & try to reboot & check the result.
In order to break the puzzle, it best start with RSOP.MSC & that you might have already tried,so try to enable userenv logging to troubleshoot the GPO application error in depth.

Are other policies getting applied on this computer?
What are the errors you are getting?

Can you run gpresult on a computer that is working and the one that is not and post.
also run gpresult /v to compare.

Are there any errors in the event logs on the comuter?

Are you using Group Policy Preferences? Make sure you have the client side extensions install on the computer.

Thanks guys,

Appreciate your input. Looks like I have a lot to do. Ken, I lied after I went back and checked, none of the group policy is working on this machine.

Let me take one step at a time and post back. I did do the gpresult I think. I know I did all of the checks but didn't run RSoP as I didn't want to duplicate anything. I will post both for two machines.

All I did was run gpupdate /force n the bad machine, and it is working now. I didn't know I could do that.

It is so nice when the easiest thing is what fixes it. It definitely worked with the client gpupdate. I appreciate all the help and will save the two comments to my knolwedge base as there is clearly more information here that is usable.
