Trying to find out why a  machine is not receiving the correct group policy.  He should be getting a certain policy.  I need you to run GP Result and see what is applying and what is not.  How do I run this tool from WIndows 7?

you can either run gpresult /r with elevated mode

or use the RSOP mmc console

also gpresult or rsop will show you what "should" be applying.  Also check the event logs for issues.   If all that doesn't help you can enable verbose logging.  We can go into that if you need to.

Thanks

I think enabling verbose logging may need to be the best route.  I am getting the following message: INFO: The user "Domain\user" does not have RSOP data

if you run gpresult /r, it should list which gpo get applied.

if you don't see any, or none of it applied, you event viewer should give your the error of source Group Policy.

Thanks Justin, what type of errors would I be looking for within the Event Log?  Do you have any examples you can provide, as related to the text I should be looking for?

Using verbose logging was the option chosen to identify the issue.
