Problem: When user logs in to VM, the PU does not execute.

Symptoms: Profile Unity splash screen did not run. There is no Profile Unity Directory in Program Files\
ProfileUnity Domain Policy (GPO) did not apply to this computer.
This is happening on random machines (VDI or not)
Windows 7 clients intermittently fails group policy processing at startup or reboot. The following events are logged in the System event log:
Error 9/9/2010 2:43:29 PM NETLOGON 5719
Error 9/9/2010 2:43:31 PM GroupPolicy 1055
The behavior is caused by a race condition between network initialization, locating a Domain Controller and processing Group Policy. 
If the network is not available, a Domain Controller will not be located, and Group Policy processing will fail. Once the operating system 
has loaded and a network link is negotiated and established, background refresh of Group Policy will succeed.
Possible Resolution(s):
To workaround the issue, you can set a registry value to delay the application of Group Policy on the master (gold) image of your VDI or on local desktop if running PU locally.
1.  Click Start , click Run , type regedit , and then click OK . 
2.  Expand the following subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon 
3.  Right-click Winlogon , point to New , and then click DWORD Value . 
4.  To name the new entry, type GpNetworkStartTimeoutPolicyValue , and then press ENTER. 
5.  Right-click GpNetworkStartTimeoutPolicyValue , and then click Modify . 
6.  Under Base , click Decimal . 
7.  In the Value data box, type 60 , and then click OK . 
8.  Quit Registry Editor, and then restart the computer. 
9.  If the Group Policy startup script does not run, increase the value of the GpNetworkStartTimeoutPolicyValue registry entry. 
Recompose the master immage.
