We're currently setting up a domain.  The Server is running windows 2000, all clients are running XP pro.  When configuring the permissions for OU's if we log in using terminal services, the permissions will take.  However, when logging directly into the domain using the same account, the effects aren't seen.  Why?  How do I fix so we can log in from a computer directly to the domain?

I assume you are creating Group Policies... are you using User Configuration settings or Computer Configuration settings?  Are the XP machines members of the domain?

They are on the domain.  I am configuring the group policy for both user and computer.  IE: We have an OU, call it foo.  Within foo, I configure both machine and user policies.  

I did notice though that the computer we were using to test it out is being recognized by it's computer name, and not by the user name.  How do we get it to recognize the user main.  Also, are there any good sites you know of for configuring policies?

For the policy to apply correctly, you must have inside that OU the Objects you are targeting. Find the user and the computer you want to apply the policy and place them inside the OU and give the policy some time to apply. UNless you weant to use gpupdate to force it.
DNS sometimes, causes problems with GPs.

Going along the lines of the most restrictive though, if the user is in an OU with the group policy satisfied, and the computer has nothing specified, wouldn't the user profile restrict it to what we want it to?  

How do we make the domain recognize the user is logging on rather than the computer?

It was a DNS/WINS ISSUE.  Had to configure LDAP properly.

Thanks anyway guys.
