Using 2000 server Group Policy with Windows XP
Posted on 2006-04-17
We have a mixed 2000/xp network. Our Server is running Windows 2000 server, the client machines are using 2000 & XP.
I created a group policy (using both Computer and User configuration), which should be applied to a department (sales). A sales OU is created and the Computer and Users objects are moved to the OU. The policy is then applied to the sales OU.
The policy works well with users running windows 2000, but the policy does not work with users running XP.
A few things I've tried with XP machines:
-Diabled the XP firewall
-Initiated gpupdate /force
--->some machines are using the default domain policy; some are using both domain and sales policy
I'm hoping that someone ran into a similar situation
