NT system policies that fail

By jmcculley ·
On a small domain with a single PDC, I've tried to implement system policies to pc's remotely. Although I've made sure to use the default path for ntconfig.pol, the user policy for any user is not applied for a pc that already has a login profile and no limits on the policy it takes. Why doesn't SPE apply my policy to the target pc and how can I make it behave?

Are all of your clients WinNT? Win9x clients look for a config.pol file, while WinNT clients look for ntconfig.pol

Hi jmcculley, welcome to Tech Republic. This isn't an answer eiher, I'm afraid, just an explanation of how this place works, because it is confusing.

The status of your question shows "Answered" on because people only have an option initially topost "answers" not comments. However the question remains open until you close it.

Tom asked what OS the workstations were running. You should post a comment answering his question, then and only then can he post a "comment", basically carryingon a dialog with you until a true "answer" is reached.

Meanwhile, other users can continue to post "answers".

When the problem is solved, you award points to the person or persons who helped you the most.

So what OS are you running on theclients? :)

let us suppose that in the mind of each man there is an aviary of all sorts of birds ? some flocking together apart from the rest, others in small groups, others solitary, flying anywhere and everywhere?we may suppose that the birds are kinds of knowledge, and that when we where children, this receptacle was empty; whenever a man has gotten and detained in the enclosure a kind of knowledge, he may be said to have learned or discovered the thing which is the subject of the knowledge; and this isto know.
