1.       Which GPO applies to your client? - Run Gpresult.exe

2.       Have you refreshed the Group Policy settings? -  Run gpupdate /force if it is Windows 2003; secedit /refreshpolicy machine_policy or user_policy /enforce if it is windows 2000.

3.       Do you have correct DNS settings? Run nslookup, Ping, Ipconfig to verify connectivity and DNS resolution.

4.       Have you checked the health of the Group Policy objects on domain controllers. Run GPOTool.exe

5.       Can users access the sysvol share on the domain controller? Check the permissions of the sysvol.
