Active Directory GPupdate issue

HI All,

having an issue with a server we maintain.  some of the users are complaiing that they lose local administrator priviledges. so on investigation we noticed that any policy change made would revert back to default after a GP update .  for example userx  is added to the administrators group once the Group policy refreshed they are no longer part of the group

look foward to hearing from you all

perhaps you have another GPO in place effecting the users...

try do a 'group policy modeling' of a specific user or group of users.this may tell you whats being applied and if there are any conflicts..

it is located at the bottom of the group policy managment console..underneath the 'group policy objects'
I agree with hexemes.

You have 1 or more gpo applied to your servers with 'Restricted Groups' settings

seems a little unfair to split the points because someone said yes I agree with hexemes :P

but yeah i'm happy with my solution and unless there is any further assistance needed we can close this string.
