Group policies woking with XP and on a windows 2000 domain

Posted on 2007-09-28

I have a windows 2000 domain (two windows 2000 servers and one windows 2003 server). I'm implementing a password policy, and i'm using the gpo console on my xp pc. But for some reason, the policy didn't work.
I then went direct to our Windows 2000 Domain Controller and updated the policy there, and it worked fine?
Are there any conflicts when using an XP pc for writing policies on a 2000 domain?

    Are any of the DCs running Windows Server 2003 alongside Windows 2000 DCs?  The domain and forest must be prepped before introducing a new DC into a Windows 2000 forest.

    We do have a windows 2003 and 2000 server mix on our windows 2000 domain. I have already ran adprep /prepForest and /prepDomain, and the domain controllers are working fine.

    There just seem to be problems when running from and xp console
