Locking Down users with Group Policy
Posted on 2006-06-14
Hi I'm having some problems getting Group Policy to work like I want.
I have 9 users that are using the default User Template from SBS 2003 that I want to lock down. I created an OU called "Locked Down Users". I also created a Security Group called "Locked Down Users". I added all the users that need the extra security into the "Locked Down Users" Group and I added the "LDU" Group to the "LDU" OU.
I also created a Group Policy Object that has the restrictions I want, ie no control panel, no run menu etc. I set these all up in Administrative Templates of the User Configuration. I then linked the the GPO to the "LDU" OU, and gave the "LDU" Group Read permissions on the GPO. The GPO is link enabled and enforced.
Unfortunately I must have missed something as the GPO is not being applied to the users?
Any idea what I'm missing? Still sort of a newb at Group Policy so be gentle. ;)
