...once :-(

At least I know now it's not a sp2 problem :-/

Now the policies get applied for *one single* user but not for the rest and I 
have no clue why!! ...this is driving me mad!!

Shouldn't it be this way:
When a user logs on the workstation connects to the netlogon share and request 
the ntconfig.pol and applies it (on each logon? or only if it was modified?) 
what happens if the workstation does not find that file (for whatever 
reason)? it would be cool to have a way to prevent logon then...

Anyway... can anyone please help?!

Why is one user applying this policy
-rwxr-xr-x    1 mmelas   dff         16384 Jun 26 10:36 ntconfig.pol
while others don't. It's on the same machine!!

I am desperate...
