Hi Andrew, Hi Alex, Hi all.

We're really pleased to announce that in this release (S4 rc5), the 
sysvolreset command works fine and returns no errors.

The clients download their GPO fine, and the sysvolcheck return no error 
as well !

So our problems with SYSVOL ACL are closed for the moment.

Thanks for your efforts.
