I do not understand, how can your NAS store AD policies? Is it a samba 4 AD
Win 8 group policies must be done with the group police tool of MS Windows8
or less Win7 if it should work.

Betreff: [Samba] Windows 8 polices are not applied

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.

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 clients.

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
