    Hey guys

    I just spent a frustrating morning implementing a group policy to apply a login script to a domain (in order to map a drive, but what it is for is irrelevant).

    This went fine and worked throughout the domain - with the exception of one machine. This machine is online and joined to the domain, but will not apply the login script - it is not a user rights issue (in fact I have made them all administrators here) and as a last resort I tried renaming the machine to rejoin the domain, but that made no difference.

    Any ideas here? They can live with the situation, btu little things like this bug me and I like to resolve them if I can.

    OK two things -

    1 - you don't need to apply a login script through a policy, but you can. You can add it to their profile in AD and have it stored in the %SystemRoot%\sysvol\sysvol\<domain DNS name>\scripts share.

    2 - Go to the PC in question and type "gpresult" from a CMD prompt, should give you some info about what it is/isn't inheriting.
