windows 2003 server with AD installed and Terminal Services installed for a test.

under AD, ive got a new OU called clients and then beneath that a company name and beneath that users AKA

FOREST
  --Clients
    -- testcomp
       --  bob
       --  john

ive applied a new GPO to 'testcomp' and its there under GPMC, but when a user logs on via RDP/TERMSERV its not applied, the server applies its normal default domain policy, but not the testcomp GPO

if i move the testcomp GPO to the FOREST level its applied when the client logs on, but not down the chain.

gpupdate /force and gpresult used to test thus far.    

any ideas to get this applying as well as the default one.

Hello,

http://www.unitek.com/training/citrix/blog/?p=21

Edit the Default Domain Policy GPO.

Expand Computer Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > System > Group
Policy

It's called "User Group Policy loopback processing mode".

Set it to Enabled.

Chose either Merge or Replace you can read the difference, Replace forces domain GPO over
user settings.

GPUpdate /force

User settings take effect immediately, computer settings requires reboot.

Hope this helps!
