Newbie AD setting-up question

Ok,

I have installed Windows Server, set up an AD and created some more users (which are able to be logged into from other machines on the LAN).  Now I need to be able to implemet  a policy on certain users (groups?).  I assume this is through the group policy thing but edtiing this edits every single user on the server, not just the ones that I want to set rights for.

An answer as to how to set an individual user's (group's) rights would be great or even a link somewhere that explains this.

Thanks,

Adam

Policies cannot be applied to groups such that the policy only applies to those members of a group

I suggest you move your users into an OU (not a container) on their own and create a new group policy on that OU just for them.

I've now create an OU, put the restricted users into it but my restrictions aren't being applied to them.  They seem to have inherited the default rules (Not Configured), will this over-ride my OU rules?

Maybe I'm missing something, I right-click onn the OU, properties > new policy > edit the policy?

Yup, right-click on the OU, properties > new policy > edit the policy

Make a change to the policy and then reboot one of the client machines being used by your restricted users (create a test user and login with it on your own machine to save annoying users)

Windows XP comes with the RSOP tool, another MMC snapin, you can also downoad the GPMC from here which will help you define and control your Group Policy setup:

Lots of excellent W2k3 GPO information there too
