Hello all,

I am having some problems with the group policies in a small (~10 pc's) 
AD. I have set up Samba and i used a NAS for saving home folders and 
policies. I then had to replace the NAS and i used a new ip for the new 
NAS. For the last step i changed the ip of the redirected folders in the 
policy in order to point all pc's to the new NAS. It seems the policies 
are not applied as i still see the computers try to use the old NAS.

[jhermans at lanserver1 ~]$ samba --version
Version 4.0.1-4.centos6.1
[jhermans at lanserver1 ~]$ uname -a
Linux lanserver1.smarthomes.lan 2.6.32-431.3.1.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Jan 
3 21:39:27 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[jhermans at lanserver1 ~]$ host -t SRV _kerberos._udp.smarthomes.lan
_kerberos._udp.smarthomes.lan has SRV record 0 100 88 
[jhermans at lanserver1 ~]$ host -t SRV _ldap._tcp.smarthomes.lan
_ldap._tcp.smarthomes.lan has SRV record 0 100 389 
[jhermans at lanserver1 ~]$ host -t A lanserver1.smarthomes.lan
lanserver1.smarthomes.lan has address

I checked that the Windows clients have as the DNS server.
I also tried runnning: gpupdate /force on the clients. The clients 
donnot update the policies and now i am stuck with half-functioning 

I hope you can give me some help with this problem.
Thank you very much. If you need any more information i am happy to 
provide you with that.
Kind regards,

Jeroen Hermans
