Cannot Apply Computer Configuration of a Group Policy
Posted on 2008-01-25
What do I need to do to get my Computer Configuration settings in my User group policies to work?
I have three group policies that I cannot apply the Computer Configuration of the group policy. When I view them in the GPO Management Tool they are enabled and are linked. They are in the container of the group that I want the policy applied to. The client machines are members of the domain as well as the users. They all appear in active directory. Also, all the GPO's status shows that they are Enabled in the GPO Management Console.
When I run the Group Policy Results it shows me that the User Configurations have been applied but the Computer Configurations have not. The Group Policy Results Setting Tab show me that there where "No settings defined."
Another way that I know that the policy is not being applied is that I have one policy set to delete the roaming profile from the local machine when the user logs off. When I test the policy, the local profile is still there.
I have tested another container group of users that use a different GPO and the same thing happens for them.
I have a mixed server and OS environment. I use Windows Server 2000 and Windows Advanced Server 2003. My clients are Windows XP SP2 and Windows Vista.
Any help to resolve this issue would be appreciated.
