Applying group policies

By Eminent87 ·
Hi,

I've recently installed and configured windows 2000 server and tried to applied group policies to a certain OU but it's not working. What I was trying to do was to take certain settings (Run, Network Places, Control Panel, etc...) away from the particular OU, but it's not working. Does anybody have any suggestion as to what to do?

Applying group policies

by res06gwb In reply to Applying group policies

Lets run through a quick checklist:
1. To get to the Group Policy, right-click on the OU and click properties. Then click on the group policy tab. Make sure the block policy inheritance is checked (near the bottom)
2. highlight your GPO and click properties. In the security tab, make sure the authenticated users have READ and APPLY GROUP POLICY permissions.
3. Back to your GP, click on the edit button to bring up the GP MMC.
4. The computer configurations settings require a reboot to takeeffect, and the user configurations requires a log off, log on to take effect.
5. After changing the GPO, reboot or log off...depending on the GPO's applied, and log in as a user that is a member of the OU and it will work.
Hope this helps,
