Why are you using a script instead of restricted groups?
See here: http://www.frickelsoft.net/blog/?p=13
First of all, look at the application log to see if it says anything.

Secondly, use restricted groups instead for this type of task.

Finally, this seems to be a common problem. It is often related to problems with poor network drivers on the client, and possibly network switches that take a long time to become active because of spanning tree settings. I never get 100% startup policy success in my network of several hundred nodes.
Try a GPupdate /force on the client.  Also could you post the GPresult?

A script is not the correct way to do this.  We should be using the method explained in my first post!
