Group Policy

Hi  !! Expert,

We have got 2 windows 2003 domain controllers single site/ single domain. All Windows XP- SP2 Clients. We are applying the  Firewall policies for all the users. Created a GPO and linked it to Default Domain Policy. It should apply to all the Users in the domain. Am i right?

But it is not applying to 4 machines which are also windows XP-SP2. There are no errors in the event logs either in the domain controller or these problamatic machines.

Any idea what can be dome for this?

Urgent Please

Have you installed the Group Policy Management Console?

If so, you can run Group Policy Results wizard to see if it should apply the GPO to the machine (firewall settings are applied to computers, not users).

Which policies have you configured, and what are you trying to achieve?
Are the 4 computers in the same Organizational Unit as the others?

Yes, the GPMC is Installed and i have taken the RSOP & gpresult also, which shows that the policies are applying.
Yes and we are configuring the firewall policies for the computers.
All the 4 computers are in the same OU as the others.
Our issue is when users login to the domain and the domain GPO is not applied. When viewing the firewall settings on the machine the "off domain" firewall settings are being applied.
IT Pros Agree: AI and Machine Learning Key

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

open a cmd window on the affected computer
type: gpresult /z >> c:\gpresult.txt
look in that file on what is being applied >> denied

On the client machines we found that NLA Service ( Domain Profiles) so, just setting it to automatic--- group policies were applying everytime.
