    Our GC crashed and has been rebuilt, replication between DC's is now working
    fine but user restrictions will not apply. machine policies do apply. if we
    give the test user local machine administrator rights all policies apply
    perfectly. any help appreciated

    1. So if you enable User Environment logging and see where what is
    failing
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;221833

    2. Also check gpresult /v output to see if the policy is actually
    coming down all the way till the user when she/he logs in.

    Sounds like a problem with the SYSVOL permissions! Follow the steps
    outlined by Gautam and keep an eye out for Access is denied type error
    messages. You may have to add read permissions for the authenticated users
    or everyone group to the SYSVOL folder.
