I'm trying to apply a Group Policy with Security filtering. AD 2003. I created a Global Security Group and put the computer objects in this group. Both are windows xp sp2. Then I removed the Authenticated users group and put this group in it's place. It has both Read and Apply group policy object selected. It is a machine based policy.
The computer objects are in the OU with GPO applied, link is enabled, etc.,
If I put Authenticated users in, it gets the policy by doing a gpupdate /force right away.
