    I have a quick question on wallpaper policies. I setup my policy to enable
    active desktop (so I can have a jpg wallpaper file). My problem is the
    policy does not seem to work. Other aspects of the policy are working, but
    not this. The path is correct (I've tried UNC path and drive mapping). The
    permissions are set correctly on my location, but I can't seem to figure out
    why the wallpaper policy will not apply.

    I have found other articles and followed the instructions, but I am stumped.
    Any ideas?

    Try running the gpupdate cmd with force and result options. the result
    option will let you see what you client is getting on their pc.

    The system is getting other items from that policy (login script, office
    setup features) but just the wallpaper is not working.

    Those two items are already set and it still does not work. I'm stumped.

  6. Are there other policies that could be overriding some or all of these
    settings?

    If you have an XP or 2003 box within scope run RSoP. Otherwise run
    gpresults (Resource Kit tool for Win2000).
