Group Policy for computer accidentally applied to server 2008, how do I remove policy?

I have an member server that I need a user to be able to log into. I accidentally applied the group policy for my client computers to the member servers. Now when the user logs into the server, it tries to mount the printers per the GPO and it hangs and the user is unable to log in. I went into GP editor and blocked the members server from the GPO and did a gpupdate /froce. However, the GPO still appears to be applying. How do I stop the GPO from trying to mount the printer when the user logs into the server? Is their a way to reset the GP on the server?

Thanks,

Justin

How are the printers applied? Are they through a GPO through User Configuration? If they are then the user will allows get the printer no matter where they logon. Now to block  this you must setup loopback processing to change the GPO when the user logons to certain servers.

Which GPO would I enable loop-back processing on? The server GPO?

I turned on loopback policy and selected replace. Now when I log in as the user, it is stuck on "Please wait for the Group Policy Client..."

Thoughts?

I decided to just bypass all of GP and create a local account for the user. This seems to be working great.

Thanks for helping.

I used a local account on the member server to log the user on. This allowed them to access the software they needed without giving to much power and also bypassed GP.
