Group Policy on OU with groups in it

I'm trying to apply a group policy on an OU with security groups in it and no users in it. However the client computer doesn't apply the group policy when I use groups, when I put the user in the OU the group policy works fine. I've found a document on the Microsoft Support Site concerning this problem. But the solution they offer doesn't work. Any other idea's?

The document is Q220822.

Looking forward to a great answer.

Try adding the groups to the security tab in the properties of the OU and check the box that says apply group policy on the right and let me know if that works.

I already did that, but it doesn't work. I've also reset the permissions on all child objects, but no effect. By the way, quick answer!

I don't think this will work.  If a user account is in another OU or the Users container, the GPO from that OU or the domain GPO will apply.  The GPO in the OU that you set for the group will not apply unless the user account is also in that OU.

But the document states that it is possible. How do you explain that?

There is a valid point there. If you have a domain policy and an OU policy dictating different things and the groups reside in one OU and the users in another, the domain policy will win out unless you change the options on it to not inherit.

So what you are saying is that this should work if I stop the inheritance of the domain policy? I've tried disabling the domain policy, but this didn't work. I'll try the inheritance option and let you know.

Yes, check the box in options for no overide and this should work.

I've got another one for you! Any experience with Exchange 2000 in a Windows 2000 cluster? Take a swing at it. Same topic area as this one.

Sorry, can't help you with that one, not used to a cluster environment.
