Rebuilding Terminal Server

We are in the process of rebuilding our terminal server.  We want to keep the same name that we were using before.  This is just a plain terminal server the only service it has on it is the TS licensing role.  I created a new server with a different name and migrated the licenses.

What I did was I unjoined the old server from the domain and deleted its computer object from active directory.  

I joined the new server to the domain with the same name as the old server. I "cut" and pasted the computer object into the OU with my other terminal servers.  

The problem is that the OU has many printer group policy objects underneath it and the new server does not recieve those group policy objects.

Everything looks good, but when I log in as a user with a specific group policy linked to it nothing happens.  I know that the GP is good because it works for my other 2 terminal servers that are in the same OU.

I was thinking it was something with using the same name.  I have deleted and re-added it to the domain twice now with no change.

I created another terminal server with a completly different name with the same results.  Looks like its a problem with inheritance maybe?

Issue can be summed up as: group policy is not applying to OU container objects.  Any ideas?

From a cmd prompt on the TS server, Run
GPRESULT /h GPO.html

Open in new window

 This will tell you why the GPOs are not being applied (filtered, denied, overwritten, ect).

You can post up the result if you'd like, and I can probably help more... not sure how confidential the info in your companies GPOs are... I personally wouldn't post mine on a public forum :)
