Solved Users are loged out automatically afetr Group polict editing

Specs: windows 7 and windows server 2003
Hi, I edited Group policy for student group users. I made some changes in existing Group policy and then update group policy. But after this editing/change there is a problem with student group users. Now whenever students log in, they are logged out automatically. This is happening with all student users after editing the policy. I have not edited lockout/lockdown policy. If anyone can help me.

What changes did you make in their GP OU specifically? And what are you looking to accomplish with their logons?
Is this when they log onto the workstations? Terminal server?

Thanks for any input.

In their GP OU I changed the policy hide access to c drive. After this I update GP. After this change students of this OU logs in and then they are loged out automatically. All these students are using tehir account for the last one year and never had this problem. I installed a fresh win7 in a computer and tested few users from that computer and they can log in. But whenever these users log in from computers which have already their users profiles they can not log in. All these usets profile is local. I deleted all the users profiles from one computer and then tested these users and then they can log in.

Most likely because the current local profiles on the workstations are getting tagged as inaccessible. What I am thinking occurred here is that you are restricting access to the C: drive, and users that already logged in no longer have access to the profile, but Windows is still trying to use that profile even though it doesn't have access. Lets use "Sally" as a dummy user.
Sally has logged into computer a, dozens of times prior to your GP change, she has a local profile already on the C drive. You now tell the domain, for Sally's user account, restrict access to the C drive. Sally logs into Computer a after the change, and the domain authenticates her, but when local access to the her profile is attempted, it is denied. Windows then logs her off, as it doesn't see a reason as to why is should create a new profile.
You will likely need to A. sweep your workstations to remove local user accounts or see what can be found to do this from the domain (i may be able to find something)
b. research the possibility of utilizing roaming profiles to resolve this problem
c. revert your change and come up with a new plan.

What is the end goal you are trying to accomplish or problem you are trying to prevent? May be some other GP methods to accomplish this.

Thanks.

Thanks for any input.

Dear jpag3074 ,

Thanks for your help and advise in detail. I will remove the restriction of C drive and then will test the users tomorrow. I hope it will work.
Kind regards.

For sure. As always, make sure you have a good backup before making changes and in the future you may want to create a testing OU for changes. GL and let us know if you need more assistance.
