We have a new Exchange 2010 environment.  We have created a retention policy NBARetention Policy.  In it are 2 tags.  We have about 200 users mailboxes added to the policy.  Some people do not see the policy.  If I remove the user from that policy, then can see the default rentention policy.  I can't figure out what could be different with those users.  Any suggestions?  Thanks

What do you mean by they can or cant see the Policy ?
Hope you have checked with both OWA and Outlook ?
Are all users on the Same Server\DB ?
I would ensure by taking a dump of good and bad user

Hope no AD replication issues ? How many DC and AD sites do we have

1 AD site.  everyone is on same server between 2 databases.  4 DCs.
Whenin Outlook or OWA, of instance, If I am in the Retention Policy I don't get an Assign Policy (or Retention policy in OWA)option.  IF I take myself out of Policy, I get the assign Policy option and it is for the default Retention Policy.

Please check if the "Allow Inheritable" is checked on the User ... also if we can run EXBPA and ensure all is fine

After assigning the Retention policy to mailboxes, try to start the mailbox managed folder mailbox settings using the below and check it

Set-ManagedFolderAssistant -Identity "Mailbox Name"

wait for some time and check it in OWA

I hope you catch the typo error in the above command.. it will be Start-ManagedFolderAssistant

I'm valuating the MRM settings in Exchange 2013, the option as shown below "Assign Policy" automatically appeared after a day for me :( So you may need to wait for a day whether auto maintenance will do the job for you

I worked with Microsoft and we discovered that the tag had some kind of corruption.  The  Guid and the retentionID should match and in this case it didn't.
