Hi phitronics,
Ensure that whoever the policy is intended for resides in that container you just set the policy on, has read and apply group policy permissions and the dos prompt is
secedit /refreshpolicy computer_policy or secedit /refreshpolicy user_policy

I set the presmision to Everyone (read and apply group policy), but the policy does not apply to the users. What am I going wrong?

Are the users in the OU attached to this policy? Do you have access to an xp pro pc linked to the domain?

what is a OU? I am a user that is attached to the policy, and yes I do have a windows XP matchein.
If you where going to say to use GPMC it does not work well for me (should I log in as a admin).

Organisational unit - in active directory users and computers - you can create your own containers as well as the default containers like users and Computers and Domain Controllers. I am going to suggest using the GPMC - but you will need an admin logon -yes. It's by far the best way to troubleshoot group policy application. Are you trying to set policies for users or computers - ie in user configuration or computer configuration? Are you also using the default domain policy?
I'd seriously try the gpmc

OK I got gpmc to work, if i click on the policy inside the container in the right side there is a colom that says Inherited and they all say no.

How do I acitvate the policy?

Hi
Do you mean you added an additional policy link to the default domain controllers policy? Or to the default users container? Ideally you should limit changes to the default domain policy to password policies as that policy affects everyone. You can't set policies on the default users or computers containers. Right-click your domain object in aduc. Select new - Organisational Unit. Then attach you new policy to this unit and move the users that you want it to apply to into this new container. Ensure they have read and apply rights to the policy and ensure that settings in the default domain policy aren't overriding policies set here.
