Windows 7 Group Policy Results Are Off!

Hello,

Background:

WIn7 32bit Pro

Domain Server: Windows 2003

Installed Group Policy Manager on Win 7 workstation

 

This is making me crazy!   I have an OU named laptops which contains the names of 30 laptops and I have a group policy assigned to it.  When I run"Group Pol results" from the Group Pol manager, I see a script listed which I enabled (comptuer confiig\policies\windows settings\scripts\startup).

 

When I run GPRESULT from a workstation in the OU, the script is NOT listed in the results.  I have run GPUPDATE /Force several times, and still have this result.

 

In BOTH scenarios the script doesn't run! 

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi
Thanks for contacting Microsoft Answers.

The issue can be related to the version of Windows. Some system utilities may have version conflict as the server happens to be Windows Server 2003 and the clients are Windows 7, which is a higher version compared to Windows Server 2003. Try updating server to windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows Server 2012 and then try again.

Upgrading to Windows 2008 or 2012 is not an option right now.

 

The WIndows 7 clients are applying other policies from the WIndows 2003 server just fine.  It's just this one setting that appears to be an issue.

The setting is USER CONFIG \ WINDOWS SETTING \ LOGON Script - logon.vbs

 

The WIn 7 computer is definitely pulling other parts of the policy, but this one setting is not being enforced.  If I browse to the location of the vbs, I am able to run it, so I do not believe it to be a permissions issue.

 

Thank you
