Just as a follow up to this.

This hotfix only allows for login scripts to run in the second session, not
anything else that would be applied as a foreground preference (Something
that would run at login, such as user preferences in Group Policy

This is due to concerns about software install / uninstall preferences and
other items which could conflict between first and second sessions.

What are other people doing on this list aside from login scripts to manage
user settings across their farms?

I'm thinking I'm going to have to go down the line of RES PowerFuse or
something like that to get this to work...

Hi there,

Does anyone on list currently have problems with Windows 2008 64bit (All
current patches) using Group Policy Preferences and a second session to the
server for the same user occasionally not getting their drive mappings?

We had this problem a lot under SP2 and went from merge mode to replace and
that seemed to fix it, after getting SP3 approved and rolled out we went
back to merge mode without hassle. 

We are seeing the session login in the security event log, but even with
group policy preferences tracing enabled, we aren't seeing anything in the
logs for the user session...

Any suggesions, or does someone have a case open at the moment about this?
