Hello,

Have several clients connected to a Windows 2008R2 server. Changed the group policy on the DC/AD server regarding SMB signing. The clients will not update the changes I made.

I do a gpupdate /force command on the client. Even after I restart the client...group policy should be updated, right?. On the client, Windows 7, there are no errors in the Event Viewer. Says Group Policy updated successfully. I look at the client's group policy and see the changes are not there.

I even rebooted the domain controller.

This is the link I am following

What am I missing? Thanks.

Are the clients connected using wireless / wired connections?

What does gpresult /r show for applied Gpos?

Are the client PCs that are expected to get the new policy updates listed under the GPO that you made changes to?

For example, your client PCs might be in the Computers object in your Active Directory, but the object you made changes to was SomethingElse.

This was an sbs server. The pc's on the domain were subscribing to the sbs user policy. I was not changing the sbs user policy on the server, I was changing other groups. When I did gupdate /force changes on the PCs they were trying to update the policy changes from the sbs group. Made the changes in the sbs user group policy and voila the sbs users pc had the changes. Gpresult showed me that!!
