I have a query. I have a windows 2000 advanced server as the Domain controller and a windows 2000 professional as the client workstation. I have a created a user called "testuser"
which is a member of the group "TEST". Also in the active directory i have created a new Organisation unit called "TestOU" which has certain group policies set by me. The "TEST" group is a part of this OU. Now my question is when the users login to the client workstation, the policies dont get applied.
Could any one help me out?

Make sure TestUser is in the OU that you have applied the policy to, and also has read and apply group policy rights to the gpo ie via filtering from the policy appling to the test security group or by read and apply policy rights applying to authenticated users - If the user isn't in the OU policy will not apply. Run this from a command prompt at the dc

secedit /refreshpolicy user_policy  (assuming that the policies are set in the user configuration part of the policy) - then try again.
Gpresult.exe: Group Policy Results

You can download this tool if you don't already have it as part of the 2000 resource kit, and run it from a command prompt on a workstation with the non-working login to assess if the policy is being applied.
