Windows SBS 2008 GPO script not being pushed to computers

I have a script that will map 2 drives for a user when they log on to a computer. I followed the steps from here:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Q_24016980.html

The last post in the thread was particularly helpful. I did what they said but the GPO script still isn't being pushed to the computers. However the GPO script works when I log on to the server. It will map the drives on the server but not on any other computer.

Any ideas? Thanks

Make sure this GPO is linked to the domain root or to the OU that contains the users that will be affected.  If using the Computer Config node make sure to link it to the OU with the computers in it.

In the Group Policy Management console the drives are mapped inside the Windows SBS User Policy and when I click on the scope of the Windows SBS User Policy I see all the users. Is that what you are talking about?

go to the workstation and run a gpresult from the command prompt and look for your GPO.  This will tell you if the users are even picking up the link.  Post the output here.

The results were:

The PCs are not getting any policies.  This is most likely a DNS issue at the client or a firewall issue at the server.  Check the system log for any errors relating to group policy; a bunch of them should be generated at system startup and logon.

You an also start, run, rsop.msc

More than likely you will see a red X on User Configuration (and probably Computer Configuration too).  Right click User Configuration, Properties, then the Error Information tab.  Paste any errors here.

If the firewall is enabled on the server disable it and reboot a client.  If policies are now being applied then you know the issue is related to the firewall on the server.

Also, check to make sure the primary DNS server at the client is the IP address of the server.
