Hi All,
I have a client with a small network with 5 PC's (Vista Win 7 XP) and sbs 2008. No GPO are being applied. I have tried setting some logon scripts for Network Mapping and I know they work because if I browse to the folder the .vbs scripts are in from the client machine and run them from there they work fine. I have run rsop.msc and it shows me that the policys are being run  on the local machine but nothing is happening locally. I also have used the folder redirection wizard in the sbs console and that dosent seem to want to work either. I have run the GP modellingon the server and it says the GP should be applied. It is just not working and I am at my whits end. Any suggestions people please. Also I have truned off the firewall on the server and the local machine and still it doenst work

HI All,

Just an update. It seems that the GPO's ARE being applied for XP but NOT for Vista, 2008 (on the server itself if I use gpupdate/force) or win 7

The usual cause of this is that the stations and the server are not fully patched.  Client side extenstions need to be installed on the systems, as SBS 2008 was released before Windows 7.  Please use MS Updates on both the server and a recalcitrent station, then restart both.  Sometimes it takes a couple of reboots for the stations, or gpupdate /force, or both.  It can take some time.

Hi Thanks for that, but they are all fully up to date. I have however managed to get the logon scripts to run and stick if I logon with a domain user acount that hasnt had the account name and domain added to the local accounts. My usual way of setting up the primary user on a PC is to add them as a local admin to the machine and then log on through the domain. This seems fine with GPO and XP but not with Vista and Win 7. I am wondering if the local Policy for a user is running after the Group policy and screwing it up? Just a thought.
