What am I missing when I apply a GPO at an organizational level that doesn't take affect.
Posted on 2004-10-20
Our PDC is a Win2K Server and I am using Active Directory. I can apply GPOs to the Domain level successfully, however when I apply a GPO at an organizational level it does not take affect.
First, I created an OU: Under Active Directory Users and Computers, and under Groups, I selected Action from the toolbar and then New and Organizational Unit. The name of this OU is GIS.
To apply a GPO I right clicked on the OU GIS, selected Properties and then the Group Policy tab. I then selected the New button and named our GPO NORun. I then double clicked the NoRun GPO and selected User Configuration/Administrative Templates/Start Menu & Taskbar/Remove Run Menu from Start Menu, where I selected Enable from the properties.
Next I selected the OU GIS and right clicked to select New and Group. The name of this new Global Security Group is GISEMP. The next step was to double click the GISEMP group and select the members tab. Using the Add button I selected user names to add and clicked OK.
When I login on the client, the policy has not taken affect. I used the GPResult.exe troubleshooting tool & the policy does not show as being implemented on the client?
Am I missing a step?
