I have multiple sites with each site having a DC and production server.  I have ou's setup like accounting that have a group policy assigned to, easy like run a logon script.  the site where the main domain controller is ( has all the FSMO roles processes the group policies fine, the other sites do not?  I have both windows 2003 and windows 2008 R2 DC in the domain.  I have upgraded the domain to support the new servers.  any help would be good....  I have tried doing gpupdate /force, and manually replicating the sites.

What are the GPO errors?
Use GPMC to run the group policy wizard to see what or why a policy is not being processed.
Run gpotool to make sure the GPOs are synchronized and do not have issues.

Presumably you mean you AD forest and domain are at windows 2003 level

If you are using group policy preferences, you must make sure the optional preference updates are loaded on systems that did not rigid ally include them windows 2003 and XP.

pick a PC thats it not processing the GPO's and run the following diagnostics

If its windows 7 - check the Windows 7 Group Policy Operation Log
run gpresult and get the output as this will show why it might not be picking up the GPO's or not processing

All I needed to do was reboot the production servers at each site and the policies took.

The other two didn't really steer me in the correct direction.  After I finally rebooted the production machines the policies started to work.  Thanks everyone for you help, I really do appreciate the effort everyone puts in all of the time.  This is a great site for information and support!
