Loopback policy not applying

So I've deployed a Windows Server 2008 R2 RDS server at Site 1 of my client's organization.  They want it to be a DR Solution if Site 2 goes off line.  I've made a seperate OU for RDS Servers, I've put the RDS server into that OU, created a GPO with Loopback enabled and set to "replace" and I have some drive maps created.  I then set the policy to apply to the RDS server, but after running GPUPDATE /FORCE as well as multiple log offs, I don't see the drive maps appearing.  There are also no errors in Event Viewer saying that it didn't apply.

What am I doing wrong?

Typically i like to break out the Loopback Policy in its own GPO. I then make sure that the Loopback policy is processing first and then User Configuration in a different GPO applied Second. This way i can enable that loopback policy is applying first and not overwriting the settings.
