Why are you using a script instead of restricted groups?

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!
