GroupPicy Issue

thomasm1948 used Ask the Experts™

I have issue where our students use wireless in one of their labs and for some reason or another sometimes they are able to get all of the their drives and other times they do not.  The following are the events that I am receiving:

Event ID 1112
Source Group Policy

The Group Policy Client Side Extension Folder Redirection was unable to apply one or more settings because the changes must be processed before system startup or user logon. The system will wait for Group Policy processing to finish completely before the next startup or logon for this user, and this may result in slow startup and boot performance.

event ID 1129
source GroupPolicy

The processing of Group Policy failed because of lack of network connectivity to a domain controller. This may be a transient condition. A success message would be generated once the machine gets connected to the domain controller and Group Policy has succesfully processed. If you do not see a success message for several hours, then contact your administrator.

If I do a gpupdate /force then it tells me that folder redirection occurs at login and asks to restart the computer. after that it seems to work for the student, but that is not a resolution for the teacher as it slows down the class.

How can ensure that all of the GPOs will be applied and not just some of them

I used to have that issue too. Funny part is I used a group policy to solve this issue. See if this works for you.

Computer Config/Admin Templates/System/Logon/Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon:Enabled.


I have that setting under by connecting the laptops to the wireless.  Should I add it again for the Drive Mapping group policy?

You could do that. I just have it as part of my default domain policy so that I know all machines will have policies applied when they are supposed to.


I will give I try and see how it turns out tomorrow morning.  I would think that the wireless GPO initiates first and then the drive maps and if that setting is in the wireless GPO then I shouldn't have an issue.   May have to rethink the GPO settings.  Maybe 1 or 2 large ones rather than having 16.  Granted the GPOs are inherited
