Right-click the domain controllers OU go to the Group Policy tab click the permissions button this is where you check. If you have GP Management installed you will need to check the permissions there.

Go to the Run \\127.0.0.1 then check permissions. Go to C: to see the SYSVOL folder.

hi,  as i have not installed gpmc  all i see after doing:

Right-click the domain controllers OU go to the Group Policy tab click the permissions button this is where you check. If you have GP Management installed you will need to check the permissions there.

- is yes the gp policy tab, but no permissions in there although everything else is dimmed out anyway unless i select new, but either way no permissions tab or button is on win 2003.

- dont know if it shows it on nt 4 or win 2000!  so im assuming it is set to a default setting as nothing is in the list for gp policies either!

when i locate the OU ive created and as there is not a permissions to select in the gp policy tab.

I opened up the OU ive created and in there is the "dc1.local", which is my primary domain i created and then I
right click, select properties,
group policy tab
security tab
and in the list it does already show:

Authenticated Users  Read, Apply Group Policy, Special Permissions
Creator Owner  Special Permissions
Domain Administrators  Read, Write, Create All Child Objects, Delete All Child Objects, Special Permissions
Enterprise Administrators  Read, Write, Create All Child Objects, Delete All Child Objects, Special Permissions
Enterprise Domain Controllers  Read, Special Permissions
System  Read, Write, Create All Child Objects, Delete All Child Objects, Special Permissions


although at the moment i am not using GPO's as yet, because it wouldnt work and wouldnt allow me to redirect a users folder to my fileserver!!  i will have to come back to this at a later date.  all the experts ive spoken to with have given me the same advice and ive followed it but this will still not work and they cannot advise on where to start even after doing a: gpupdate /force & gpresult.

What exactly are you trying to do? In the question it seemed you were trying to find out where the permissions were.

i have just looked again at the above and only the "Authenticated Users" has  the box ticked for "Apply Group Policy"!

i have in the passed always used the administrators account, so should it have worked under the category of "Authenticated Users"?

the others have not got "apply gp policy" ticked, although they all have some of the others ticked and the "special permissions".

Creator Owner  Special Permissions
Domain Administrators  Read, Write, Create All Child Objects, Delete All Child Objects, Special Permissions
Enterprise Administrators  Read, Write, Create All Child Objects, Delete All Child Objects, Special Permissions
Enterprise Domain Controllers  Read, Special Permissions
System  Read, Write, Create All Child Objects, Delete All Child Objects, Special Permissions

Does this help? You should always use a domain user account for testing GPOs

i have been told to check to make sure all the permissions have been allocated to the right places, although I have always used the administrators account anyway.

i have the following:

1 x primary ad win 2003 sp2 & some hotfixes

1 x win 2003 & sp2 and some hotfixes on domain with also exchange 2003, linked to primary dc above and the dns in tcp/ip is also pointing to the above.

i can send email externally from my home domain and exchange server.  i do want to eventually install gpmc and use it but it never worked.  in the end i did a fresh install, as at the time i had my primary dc & exchange on the same pc and this may have caused issues that if i havent the experience to put right, i might go round in circles, which ive been doing for about 2 months now on it.

once ive sorted my email hopefully this week, i will want to redirect my client pc to a fileserver, via the default settings and other stuff and if this works, i will then attempt to install gpmc again and see if i can continue to do stuff.

ive always used the adminstrators account to configure anything & when logging onto my client pc with admin rights and selecting share, which i DID NOT think i had to do if id already redirected it to the fileserver on my primary dc.  hence logging onto the clien pc via admin account, making what i thought were the correct changes and then logging back on the the client pc back onto the domain, but nothing every changing.

just to clarify my last paragraph above, after making relevant changes using and admin account, id log back onto client pc with a user account:  corinne which could also log onto the domain, so it obviously had those rights.

So, file redirection isn't working then. Have you tried to right-click the My Documents folder and redirecting from there to see if this worked? Also, is the client pointing to the DC for DNS and only the DC?

this is exactly the instructions ive been following from all experts and it shows  my path pointing to my fileserver.  i havent got it now but in the event viewer it shows its pointing to the right place but does say there is an issue but didnt understand.

of corse the client pc is pointing to the only DC because it is logged onto the domain.

ive attached a screenshot if you wish to look!!

1. no it doesnt work.  i thought file redirection did everything after it was configured, all i had to do was log onto the client pc and everything would be automatically set.  is this true, or is it a case of configure file redirection on server first and do something on the client pc?
