Active directory policies

By jhayesit ·
Hi,

i applied a security policy to an OU, and one of those seetings was to hide the drives and disable changing backgrounds. now i want to enable these two settings, which i did in the policy. but what i have noticed is that the drives still don't show for some users and that it still blocks some users from changing the background. I ranned gpresult on a machine that it took the change and gpresult on another that didn't take the change and i noticed that the policy was being applied from different DC's. which shouldn't matter because they replicate and i checked that on sites and services and it has replicated. but i don't know why it works when the policy comes from certaing DC's only.

any ideas, thanks

Hi

Check within the GPO under security that you have set "apply group policy" to "allow" for you user group or machines" Also check that Part of the policy is not disabled, Either user or computer settings.

Hallo,

we noticed the same problem and after investigating we found that some entries in the registry are not cleaned-up by the GPO especially in the HKCU. There are 2 ways to work around. 1 edit the registry, not so nice in our case with 1200 clients but we manage. 2nd solution, in the GPO you changed perhaps the policy from "enabled" into "not-configured". Now change this into "disabled". This forces the GPO to clean-up settings in the registry.
Let me now if this works for you,
good luck Rohad
