I have a simple group policy called ALL_COMPUTERS that I have applied to the OU that contains all my desktops, laptops and QA and DEV systems.
After 900 seconds the screen saver kicks in and requires the username and password to be used when you resume activity. I followed the
I made it in the Group Policy Management tool on a my 2003 AD server, it’s enabled and at the top of the OU called DESKTOPS
There are three separate OUs inside that container, desktops, laptops, and qadevsystems
Each of those OUs has a few specific policies applied to them but they all inherit from the top level
The problem is, it does not seem to forcibly apply to the desktops, the user can change it back to whatever they want
Other policies I’m enforcing via this GP are applied, i.e firewall ports and forcing windows updates.
Just not the screen saver
The desktops are all running XP
