How can I increase the amount of time allowed for Windows XP clients to apply Group Policy from a 2003 domain controller?  I'm having issues where GPOs are not applying to branch computers, and one of the things I want to try is increasing the amount of time allowed for the clients to apply the policy.

Increase amount of time i think will slow down the login process .. i recommend to use gpupdate /force command as a Login script . just create a xyz.bat file past this command and apply it on the OU wear all that computer are belong as a computer startup script or you can add this command in user login script also

sedberg1 as far as i know there is no option to Increase amount of time to allow GP , but there are a setting in group policy called "Group Policy Refresh Interval "  you can try to manually set Refresh Interval for GPO and that will Increase the Policy apply inter-well and more possibility to apply GPO

Find below the document how to set  Group Policy Refresh Interval on DC or on computer
