We are creating a newVM 2008 64bit TS Server.  I create a new OU and 3 new GPO's.  Top GPO Computer Policy (Only Computer Settings set by this GPO) 2nd GPO is Admin User Settings (This is set for only for Domain Admins to administrat the box - I have no settings set in this GPO as I want us to have full access to everything) 3rd GPO is for all Domain Users (The is the restrict GPO were I lock down the box for all Domain Users but only set User Settings no Computer restrictions).  GPO Precedence is Computer GPO, Admin GPO & then the Domain Users GPO.  The Computer and Domain Users GPO are working but the Admin GPO is not working.  How do people typically administor the Server?  Am I setting up something wrong. I just want to be able to administor the box like I would any other server I have.  I'm going to try to set some setting in the Admin GPO opposite of what I have in the Domain Users GPO to see if I that works but I wanted to get other answers too.  What does Linked Enable and Enforce do in a GPO?  Thanks

One other site note I did Block Inheritance on the OU and I have Loopback Enabled (Replace Mode) in the Computer GPO.

I actually got this working now.  I disabled all the settings in the Admin GPO that I enabled in the Users GPO and now I'm able to manage the server lIke I wanted. Thanks!

That is a workable option, but honestly having competing GPOs really isn't your best answer.  I am glad you got it working, regardless.
