Windows 7 Pro- Caching login scripts

I have Windows 7 Pro 64 bit computers that are not picking up changes to login scripts for map drives. XP users works fine, I have 3 DC's on our network and they that replicated the changes to the scripts to all DC's. If i delete the user profile on a Windows 7 computer then the script runs fine. Question.....does Windows 7 cache those login scripts somewhere on the local computer ?

Are you DC's 2008 or R2? In order to fully manage Win 7 workstations, you will need to upgrade your DC's to "know" about Win 7 and all the wonderful policies therein.
Get your hands on a Win2K8R2 DVD and run ADPREP

What kind of login script are you using? batch, vbs or built-in policies?

Our domain is at a server 2003 functional level, we do have one Server 2008 R2 domain controller, the other two are server 2003 DC's. The login scripts are simple batch flles.

ieden: I will try your solution in the am...... Thanks will get back to you.

I'm assuming you ran ADPREP to get the 2008R2 server into the DC cluster. If so, try managing the policies from teh 2k8r2 server and do not use the winxp tools to connect to it. RSAT is the tool set needed to connect to a 2008r2 server to manage group policy and other domain services.

Changed Group Policy by using RSAT, sent all computers in the lab a gpupdate command and all is well now. It picked up login script changes just fine.

Thanks so much ieden
