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.

lanserver1.smarthomes.lan has address 10.20.0.33
I checked that the Windows clients have 10.20.0.33 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.
