Group policy not working

hi guys,

I've got two sites. Both sites have DCs running in a 2008 environment  and are on the same domain through VPN. Between site 1 and site 2 is a firewall.

Locally at our end (site1), I've deployed some printers using Group Policies and it works when I log to a terminal server. However, when I do the same thing at site 2 and log on to their terminal services, the printers don't load.

I ran gpresult /z at both ends. At site 2, you can see that the 'Printers for Quantiv' is denied. At site 1, it is working. Can you guys see from the results I've posted and see what could be the reason?

Thanks a lot

And you have a DC in Site #2 that replicates with Site #1?  
Is replication working correctly?

If you go to \\DCname\sysvol and drill down on all of the DC's does it show the policy on all of them?

Did you verify the permissions on the GPO?  Have you tried setting the permissions to "authenticated users" if they are narrowed down beyond that?

Can you go to \\dcname\sysvol\\scripts and see the script on all DC's?  Can you run it manually from that path after logging in?  Especially try to run it from the MFN10DOM01 path.

Finally, run the Group Policy Modeling Wizard in GPMC and specify the MFN10DOM01 domain controller as the DC to use but use a computer like "Exchange" (the one you ran it on from site#1) as the computer account to model, and the same user account you used for both sites.  That should help you as well.

Hi, make sure that all necessary ports are opened on firewall fo AD data replication

Looks like something with replication between Sites

Didn't you just ask this question and get a resolution?

Yes, I did. However, the issue was I didn't test it. We were told some ports were closed. They opened those ports, we tested it and didn't work. By that time, I had already closed the question:(.
