I tried making a logon script to map some network drives since I need more than homedir. I have applied to script to "logon" in a GPO on server 2008, but it does not run on the PC when I logon. When I make a Gpresult -r it show as applied but it never ran the script. I tried running the script manually and that works fine.

In Event Viewer in windows 7 it show an error "Event ID 1129" with this text in the general tap:

The processing of Group Policy failed because of lack of network connectivity to a domain controller. This may be a transient condition. A success message would be generated once the machine gets connected to the domain controller and Group Policy has succesfully processed. If you do not see a success message for several hours, then contact your administrator.

In case anyone is curious.

You can try group policy setting:

computer config\admin templates\system\logon\always wait for the network at computer startup and logon

It does slow down PC startup, but it's helped me get login scripts to work in the past.
