GPO over wireless network
Posted on 2014-10-23
I am now at the hair pulling stage:
We are a small school running an ICT suite with 15 wired desktops, a laptop trolley with 16 newish dell latitudes and windows 2008 server
The school ICT restrictions and software delivery are via GPO's - everything from desktop wallpaper to software delivery.
We now have a situation where the ICT wired PCs are stable and fine - all policies load
The laptops are a nightmare - sometimes the GPO loads, other times we have a black background and no access to network drives amongst other policies
If I check the gpo result - all have apparently applied
I have checked the driver (it is the latest for the wireless cards)
I have added "wait for network"
I have spend hours looking up this problem over the internet - there are many many suggestions and I have tried and failed with most of them - If I run a gpupdate /force - generally the laptops will load correctly - if they are left for a while, then some will load, some won't
The teachers are getting really frustrated - unfortunately I am not full time - I come in, get them to work and then a few days later I get phone calls saying that they are not working
Any help would be massively appreciated
