Problems with group policy
Posted on 2003-11-30
I have been having problems with my win 2000 server, i have tryed to create group policies for users.they are all running 2000 machines.
I created an OU with 2 sub OU's, one for the users and one for the computers.the group policy was set in the parent OU and the 2 sub OU's to take the parent group policy
I then added the users and the respectable computers and refreshed the system with secedit /refreshpolicy USER_POLICY and secedit /refreshpolicy MACHINE_POLICY.
now the thing is that i tested this setup on a test domain that i created in our workshop and it worked 100%, but when i tryed to implement it on the proper domain the users do not take on the group policies unless you make the user a roaming profile and log on as the user on the server.
Is there a setting on the server stopping the server from refreshing the policies?
Another thing is that when I log on to a users machine and check to event viewer it gives the error " windows can not determine the user or computer name, return value (1722)".
this is obviously not correct.
could some one please help as i have been battleing with this problem for over 2 weeks now.
Thanks so much
