Interesting. I probably know the answer to this, but what happens if the lnk
file is on the local file system? Is it more reliable?

Actually, what I was thinking about is disabling Fast Logon Optimization by
enabling the per-computer policy at Computer Config/Admin
Templates/System/Logon/Always wait for the network at computer startup and
user logon

Hi Darren,

 

Just checked and the Fast Logon is not configured either way, and all these
cleints are Vista. I will test with it enabled.

 

The strange thing is that if the user has logged in and the local profile
has been created the 2nd time they login the shortcuts could be there and
then just disapear.

 

Was trying to use GPLogView to see if I could see anything in there, but
that just said that the shortcuts had been applied. Which they hadn't that
time.

Ronnie-

I think what is happening there is that you are seeing a timing issue.  The
error code shown in that report corresponds to "the system cannot find the
file specified" which to me probably means that DFS path you are pointing to
is not being resolved at logon the way it should. Do you have Fast Logon
Optimization still enabled on your clients?

Hi,

 

I have an All Users - Policy were I set all the shortcuts for my users but
at the next level I have an Auto logon OU were my users are placed.

 

OU -All Users

    GPO - All- Users - Policy { Shortcuts set via preferences}

    OU-Autologon {users placed in this OU}

        GPO - Autologon - users - Policy

 

Shortcut Preference 



 



 

 

With Item level targeting to an AD group

 

When the user logs on most of the time the shortcuts are there but some
times they do not appear in the menu.

 

If you do a GPS you get the following :

 



 

 

but sometimes they apear shortly after the user has logged in but sometimes
they do not apear until a restart and login is preformed.

 

Has any one experianced similiar issues.

 

I think if I used the create it may help but I was homing to have the
ability to remove the user from an AD group to remove access to the
particular application.

 

thanks

Ronnie
