Group Policy Changing by it self

By william ·

I am finding on several machines that several group plocies have changed. The following changed that I am aware of:

-Change password button is enabled. (but correctly set in GP) (we have it set to disabled)
-shutdown is disabled so you have to log in to shut the system down
-last user name appears. (we have set to disable)

This is on Domain environment using Linux servers.

Any help would be appreciated, I have been looking at this for a couple weeks and found nothing, everything I find comes out false. Also these do not happen immediately after running updates (WSUS and Windows).

Group Policy Changing by it self

We have done that, it does not work. We are running on linux servers, not windows. On some machines, after we change the settings back manually, it changes back to what it is not supposed to be. Thanks for the suggestion tho
