Hello all

I'm testing a DR site and have run into a problem with group policy.  Here is the scenario:

I have a datacenter where all of my VMware VMs are replicated to.  We are connecting staff doing DR testing to the datacenter using a Cisco VPN.  The goal is to bring up all the replicated VMs at the datacenter and have the users connect over the VPN to test.  We are using HP thin clients and Citrix and I had no problems joining a new machine and running Citrix the group policies that should be applied to the workstation don't get applied.  When I run gpresult I get the error in the title.  I suspect the problem lies with how we are handling the IP addressing of the test workstations.  The servers are all retaining their regular IPs which are in the 10.35.208.0/20 range.  The workstations get a DHCP address handed out by the Cisco ASA which is making the VPN connection.  This range is 192.168.10.0/24.  I can ping and RDP into any device on the 10. range so routing is working as expected but I'm not clear on why I can't get group policy to apply.  Running gpupdate /force returns a success message for both computer and user but the settings never actually take hold.

I'd appreciate any help on this one, thanks!
