Put a few new PC's out on the floor today and on after rollout they did not receive map drives or printers.  this is usually done with group policy.

We are running server 2008R2 for domain controllers and the end users have

When I attempted to run gpupdate /force I receive the following error:
The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows attempted to read the file \\domain.root\SysVol\domain.root\Policies\{B86483ED-285A-438A-9B17-9011BDE2F16D}\gpt.i
ni from a domain controller and was not successful. Group Policy settings may no
t be applied until this event is resolved. This issue may be transient and could
 be caused by one or more of the following:
a) Name Resolution/Network Connectivity to the current domain controller.
b) File Replication Service Latency (a file created on another domain controller
 has not replicated to the current domain controller).
c) The Distributed File System (DFS) client has been disabled.
Computer policy could not be updated successfully. The following errors were enc
ountered:

Correct the new PC's are loaded under the correct OU.  same OU as the previous.  the GPO for drives is a user policy.  and the user has not changed location.

grrr...  ok can browse to it,  but not access anything in it.  simple permission fix,  and the 2 machines I've tested so far have run the policies!

Interesting how it only affects a handful of users....
