We have all the necessary ports/services forwarding through our firewall (this is not on a public internet, but segmented internal network) and can login fine.

HOWEVER, evern though mapped drives work, login, joining to domain, etc. all work -- Group Policy isn't applying itself.

GPUPDATE says "success" but none of our policies are enforcing.  HERe are our open ports

•      Kerberos (88/tcp, 88udp)
•      LDAP (389/udp, 389/tcp and/or 636/tcp if using LDAP over SSL)
•      SMB over IP traffic (445/tcp, 445/udp)
•      DNS ports (53/tcp, 53/udp) used for name lookups
•      135 DCE Enpoint
•      1000-5000 (For testing of RPC)

Shouldn't it be working w/ Group Policy too!?


Thanks!!

Spoke to soon... found a KB on MS website that describes adding registry keys to set a static range for the RPC ports.  One we did this we were good to go.
