restricted groups not working

Hi,
Windows 2003 DC with XP computers.
We've added users that we need to give Local admin rights to XP computers.  We added them to the GPO and linked it to the OU's where the computers reside.   They're being applied to the computer configuration.
We see the GPO present in the computer configuration properties of rsop.msc, but still don't seen them applied (we don't see the users in the administrators group).    
Any suggestions?

Can you take a screenshot of the GPO (if you can)   Sounds like you did everything right.  Florian also has a really good entry

Any errors in the event logs on the machines telling you that the GPO didn't apply?
Thanks
Mike

Hi,

Sounds like you've configured this properly but just to be sure, please check through the following guide:
http://www.windowsecurity.com/articles/Using-Restricted-Groups.html

Once confirmed please let me know.  It's probably a nesting issue if the instructions above don't help.

Regards,

Ady

What port do the GPO's use?
Using rsop.msc, I do see the gpo being applied, but i dont see the group added into the Local users and groups of the Local computer.

Although my problem isn't completely solved, I don't have access to the client for another month---I'll test the above, and if it still presents itself as an issue, I'll create a new question.
