how to get an xp machine to reassociate with the group domain policy

how can i get XP machines that are "part" of the domain to use the domain settings (found in windows firewall - general tab - near to lower left). some of my machines state "Windows Firewall is using your non-domain settings" and of course i want them to be assocated with the group policy of the domain controller. all machines XP SP3, server is sbs2003 sp2 and up to date.

Are all xp computers part of the container where this policy is applied.
have you changed local security policy on those PC's maybe?

Thanks,
if gpudpate /force helped, simple restart should help too, at least that's what it should be.
