Hello

I have given policy in the 2008 R2 domain Server for Date and time as well as wallpaper. All the client computers in the domain should have date and time as per the domain server and should display wallpaper set in the domain policy. This policy is getting updated on some computers and doesn't get update on some computers. Even when i join a computer to domain, few computers accepts the policy whereas others does not.

What can be the problem and how to resolve this so that all the client computers in the LAN will accept the domain policy. Please advise.

Where did you link the policy to? The root of the domain or an OU?

I would follow this troubleshooting path -

1. on affected computer run set logonserver command to see where it is getting its GPOs
2. check on that dc for any replication issue
3. try to run gpupdate /force command on affected computer.
4. compare the affected computer with the working computer and identify difference - if it is only for certain IP range (if yes, you should look in to your sites and services settings) or particular user
5. check if there is any other GPO conflicting the same settings
6. also compare the ou of affected computer and working computer.
