Step 3:   Ask your question.  
 Question Body  
I would like to apply a logon script to only a few users that wont affect other people. I created an OU off of the main domain. I added a login script and it won’t work for the 2 users I put in there. The only way for me to get it to work is to link the main domain policy to it and that affects everyone.

Thank you in advance I am a relatively new admin and more of my later experience is on Cisco and my server experience is on NT. So if this was a dumb question I am sorry.

check the permissions for the GPO.  ensure the 2 users have read and apply GPO
ensure that the users were added to the OU and the logon script is applied under user settings of the GPO not Computer settings.

use the gpedit refresh policy command to ensure the new policy is applied to the new OU.

In an OU, I believe you need to add users.  Groups do not work well.  I think.... has been a while
try adding the user to the OU and testing it.  
Check the permissions on the GPO.... should be read and apply settings for the users( can use group here)

Create the OU off the domain in the normal way. Good practice is to create sub OU's ie Users, printers, Computers which all belong in the OU. Then right click on the main OU and go to properties, then goto group policy, Then click new to create a new user policy then under user configuration select scripts and then edit the scripts as required. This should work.

The problem was I already had users that where in one huge container(4 different locations 3 kinds of users per location) So i tried to make the OU as above add a group to the new ou and add my users to that group. Problem is it does not work what I had to do was MOVE the users to that container and then it worked.

>>>In an OU, I believe you need to add users.  Groups do not work well

That is a comment I mader earlier... why was that not accepted as a solution when that is what you ended up going with.

>>>add a group to the new ou and add my users to that group. Problem is it does not work what I had to do was MOVE the users to that container and then it worked.

what the author was saying was that he needed to create a login script for some specific users, I explained that you can create an OU within an OU, called sub OU's this could be called users and then may have a policy applied to it.

That is an outstanding method for organizing OUs but the fix to the problem would be to use USERS and not GROUPS

I am not worried about the points.
It seems a bit disrespectful because it is like my suggestion was completley ignored.
The main objective here is to get the answers to the questions or problems.
The secondary objective would be to give credit where it is do.  
Please, keep that in mind for future reference.  
I have seen many people get very irrate over situations like this. I am only pointing it out... not irrate.

For future reference.. if you would like to change the accepted answer or grade or split the points you would need to post a zero point question in the community support topic area(TA).
Do not worry about it for this question.

thanks

the idea of this website is to give help to people who require it from people who can give the help. The primary objective is to solve the problem the authors have and get their problem working. Now if your explanation was not clear enough of what you were trying to say and did not help the person then you do not deserve the credit, whether you think you were right or not. If after you posted your answer the author still could not resolve the issue then he has the right to look at another reply. At the end of the day the answer which provided the support to enable the author to resolve the issue in question should take the credit. So stop bitchin your getting boring.
