All new domain users are too restricted

Hi,

new to active directory, I'm trying to create multiple roaming profiles for a homework project. This should be easy enough as I have the instructions right in front of me. But as I'm following them I get stopped by a message when trying to access the computer's properties that says, "This operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer..."

How do I remove these restrictions? They seem to be all of over the place and I don't know why. Any users I have created and all new users have heavy restrictions on their accounts. The Administrator account is also restricted. I'm not sure if it's proper but in my school environment I do not have all these restrictions.

Thanks,
Waffe

Check the various group policies in the domain to see if there are restrictions being applied that way.

Thanks,

can you be more specific? I don't know exactly where to modify a GPO of the domain. Is it in Computers and Users or Group Policy Management.

Did you already play with GPO's on your domain? (Group Policy Management) of any local policies in this domain?

Yes, I have messed with the GPO of the domain because new users that I created could not logon so I added Domain Users to the allowed log on. I have looked that GPO over extensively for things that would stop me from accessing the computer properties etc but everything seems fine ...

I will look there again...

I could have made other changes earlier in the semester and not remember exactly what I have done, it's all very new to me and I'm still building a frame work for it.


Thanks,

Check within Group Policy Management and see which GPO's are being applied across the domain.  Another good way to check is by running a "gpresult" from a machine and user account that's having issues, that will give you a list of applied policies for both the user account and the computer object.

See if you can reset your security profile with templates standard installed in windows.

Thanks you two, I did have a GPO on the main domain that I created earlier in the semester. It simply had disabled the control panel. The "gpresult" concept really pointed me in the right direction. Good tool to have.

Thanks,
