Windows 7 GPO's on a 2003 domain with a new 2008 DC

Just introduced a 2008 DC to our 2003 native domain.  Installed Win7 machines and created new GPO's from the 2008 server.  They will not apply, ran gpupdate /force and rebooted workstations a couple times, pointed their DNS to the 2K8 server as well.  Thought you can control GP's for Win 7 as long as you create them from the 2K8 server?  Bi-directional replication is working

Thoughts?

Have you done a domain prep on your other servers to bring some functionality up to 2008?

Yes ran adprep  - "forest", "domain" and "gpprep".   Noticed I can't import any .admx templates either from the policy definitions folder.

Which policy is not working you can you elaborate the same.You can also check the event log on the client PC,you may get evidence to troubleshoot further.

You can also run rsop and gpresult to check is the required policy applied on the client end.

Ensure that GPO is applied to correct OU were User/computer exist.
