GPO logon user script stopped working

I have a logon script to mapped folders and printers and startup IE and FireFox that all of the sudden just stopped running.    If the user had already a profile on the local machine, it runs.  If the user never logged on to the computer or moved to another computer that doesn't have a user profile, it will not run at all.

Hello Everyone,

I just basically re-did the GPO and everything started to work again and it is replicating across all 23 DC controllers.    This is what worked,   because I was going crazy trying to find solutions.    The issue I was having was that the GPO was not replicating to all DC, so some users were not getting their GPO when logging outside their home site.

Thanks

Richie

Does this happen for all computers in question?

For users with a  new profile have you tried the following..
- open start run, type rsop.msc
- On Computer Configuration right click select properties, check if the policy is applied
- Perform the same steps on the User Configuration, If this is a user based policy

If the policy is not applied then I would be checking the security filtering to make sure that nothing has changed and also to ensure that it is being applied on the correct OU where the user or computer objects reside.

What does the logon script supposed to do? Does it relay on parameters/settings only available after the first/second logon when the application specific settings are established?

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

This happens to all computers in the desired OU where the user and/or computer resides for the user based policy.  If I try rsop.msc, I noticed those with problems on that computer showing multiple times.   The logon script maps shared folders and printers.  It also opens up IE to the internal portal and opens up Firefox to the ADP employee homepage to punch in and out.  The secondary script checks to see if the o/s is 32 bit or 64 bit to determine which IE to open (32 bit or 64 bit).

it is still unclear what the non-functioning of login script means in this case.
1) is the IE prowler window not open while prompting  the user to confirm IE initial settings.
2) does firefox not open prompting the user in whether firefox should be tge default browser?
3) are the other functions not setup?
Note usually two Logan's are required for application of GPos.

I'm sorry, but none of the set policies are working -  They are not getting their mapped folders and printers from the logon script.  The IE and Firefox does not open up from the second logon script.   None of the user set policies such folder redirection, desktop image and etc are not being applied to the user.

In the screenshot you have provided none of the computer policies are applying. I would check the event viewer to see if you can get more detail on the GPO processing or error messages.

Do you get this issue with all of the machines where the computer policy does not apply properly?

Have you tested the trust relationship with the domain and the machine? Also if you create a new computer object does this still happen?
