Windows 2008 and Windows 7 Group Policy

Posted on 2011-04-22
Last Modified: 2013-11-19
Anyone able to quickly tell me why policies may not be populating to Windows 7 computers from a Windows 2008 Domain Controller.

Done all the standard gpupdate /force. SUS settings have populated but trying to push down simple policies like desktop and Restricted groups but no luck.

Anyone with a quick fix who has had similar issues?

    If it is not a firewal issue, one of the gpos (restricted group) goes on the machine, Desktop seems to address users. Where have your placed your gpo? On a machine OU or a user OU?

    Do a GP Result from the DOS command and see what policies are getting applied to the machines in question
