GPO does not apply to a few Windows 2000 Pro computers

Hello,

I created a GPO to modify the Administrators restricted group in all the workstations in my organizational unit.

Most of the systems received and applied the policy, but there are some computers that even belong to the OU, to the domain, that have all the IP settings as they must be and everything, they do not apply the policy or the administrators settings are incomplete. For ejemplo if I specified that users A, B and C will be administrators through the GPO application, there are some computers that only set A and B user and C never is assigned.

I have run the secedit /refreshpolicy machine_policy with and without /enforce. Also, I have tried the user_policy and it did not change anything.

I already had that problem with other computer and we change its name, moved to a workgroup and joined the domain with the new name and it worked.

Does anyone have an idea of what can be wrong with those computers?

Thank you.

Hi
Sounds like an odd one - Have you tried running gpresult /v from a command prompt on the problem client pc's and examining the output to make sure the policies are being accessed? Is it possible that you could have any slow-link issues which may prevent policies from being applied. Are there any events in the server AND client event logs that may give further clues as to what's going on?

Just in case you need it:

Gpresult.exe: Group Policy Results

We are going to try this tool and look for more detail in the Events for the workstation.

The domain controllers in our site do not show any problem with policies.

Thank you.

Hi
Unless there's a problem with sysvol shares and AD replication the servers probably wouldn't, so hopefully the client logs and the gpresult tool will shed some more light on this,
