SBS2003 to SBS2011 migration Group policies not updating

Hi,

I am in the middle of the migration from SBS2003 to SBS2011.
Everything seems to be quite fine, but somehow clients are not loading group policies from teh new server. Some are, most not. Should I just wait or is there something wrong?

I have run gpudate /force, but still after reboot when I run gpresult, it points to old server.

2. question: Is it safe to delete old Folder redirection policy as the new one is already created. Some clients keeps redirecting to the old server as it seems to override SBS2011 made policy(??)

Regards,
Juha K.

I would try deleting your DNS Cache's on the client computers in question, I would also run gpupdate /Force from the clientmachines. It may take some time for these to complete

Thanks both of you. I followed the migration guides and also knew that gpupdate /force had to be run.

I got everything working like this:

Run gpupdate /force 2-3 times and also reboot between every command. After that the PC's started to get GP:s from the new server.
