Changing URLs pushed by policy

I push out standard URLs to Favorites on all of our PCs.  Some URLs recently changed, so I changed the policy to the new URLs.  On some machines, we see the updated URLs, but some still show the old URLs, and when you look in the Favorites folder through Windows Explorer, I see 2 instances of the favorites.

Should the Group Policy push replace the old ones?

If the policy has the URL's replaced then it should have the new URL an nothing else. If this worked on most machines and not some i would check the machines in question.

Use you can rsop.msc to see what policies are being applied and if there are/were any issues when they were being updated. You can also reference the application event log as well for more detailed information about Group Policy.

Try it with new items, don't alter the path of old items you deploy.
