Hello Gentlemans,

We are experiencing an issue where our client(person) can't log on to the Windows server 2008 EE SP2 x32. It hangs up with message

"Please wait for the Group Policies Client"

In tsadmin tools it lets 2 sessions hanged up "disconnected". Probably because he tried it twice. I cant drop him... only thorugh Proc explorer, after i killed winlogon proces.

We tried to log with our domain accounts, it was succesfull, without problems. NSLOOKUP works, Server is connected to domain. In domain we dont use GPOs.

Maybe this will help you: first it was with message "Applying Group Policy Printers policy...' but after he disable RDP option to map printers it starts with GP client message.

What is really weird, that We can't replicate issue with our domains accounts, which should be same managed as his account.

Please feel free and don't hesitate to ask for more information, and answer with any idea. Thank you in advance.

We find out that in Default domain policies there is log on script and some mapping of printers. We map these printers right on server and install drivers for this printers. Unfortunatelly we don't have rights to check this log on script...

After this action user was able to log on without problems.

I think there is always something to check, what we can forget to check.
