Unable to get GPO's to run from 2003R2 to Vista
Posted on 2008-10-08
I have a mixed business environment that is compiled of all vista business computers and my server is still running 2003 R2. I have created all my new gpo's by using my vista machine and I am currently using the updated version of GPMC. The problem I'm running into is that the gpo's will not run or apply to any of the vista machines. I have an OU under my DC in GPMC where I have linked the new gpo and it just won't run. The only way I can get it to run is by link the GPO to my domain , which then runs the GPO on every pc in the domain, including the DC, but it does run my GPO's exactly the way I want them.
I have transferred all the files over from my vista machine to my server and I do know my GPO's work, but I just can't get them to run on my OU's at all. I tired to run the dcgpofix to create the default gpo's and get an error stating it could not open the active directory object LDAP://......
