Hi,

I have installed EZ GPO on our server. The installation of the client was done manually by myself and the policys on the server are set to turn off monitors after 10mins and hard disks after 20mins. Even though I have applied this policy it does not happen. The monitors stay on and the hard drives do not power down.

I also cannot see anything in the Event Viewer saying that the policy was not applied etc etc and the service on the PC is running.

Any Ideas?

Hello lfaulkneruk,

1. Make sure you have enforced the policy.
2. From each client machine, run gpupdate.exe /forece.

BTW: to enforce a policy:

1. Open server management
2. Open Advnaced management on the tree
3. Drill down from Group Policy Management > Forest : Your domain > Domains > yourdomain.local, and select the policy that has the changes in it you want.
4. Right click the policy.
5. Make sure "Enforce Policy" is checked.
