This is the scenario we are having:
RDS Farm 2 Servers
OS: Server 2008 R2 SP1
Roaming Profiles
Folder Redirection
Farm Members in OU
All other policies getting applied
Desktop Wallpaper policy also getting applied
Themes service is running & Windows 7 themes getting applied

I am trying to deploy a common wallpaper via GPO. The policy is getting applied to the user when they log on to any Farm member. But the Wallpaper is not shown.

I have checked the registry & it's pointing to the Folder in App data. I changed the registry under HKCU, but no result.

Please note that loopback is applied to the GPO in Replace mode, but still the desired result is not achieved.
