Computer Configuration using Group Policy Preferences
Posted on 2011-04-28
I am having a heck of a time getting the Group Policy Preferences in Computer Configurations section t accomplish, well, anything. Particularly, I am playing with the Folders Extension and the Network Shares Extension. Regardless of how I set up and target settings in these two areas on my test computer or server, settings are not applied as I have hoped (oh for the old days of simple scripting - GPP - bah!). For example, setting a new Network Share does not share the folder at all, and trying to create a new folder in the Folder Extension does nothing as well. The Forest and Domain are 2008R2 functional levels, Windows 7 workstation, the links are enabled, etc. Thus I see nothing keeping these extensions from functioning. Other Preference Extensions do work for users and computers, so I am stuck trying to figure out why these are not working. Obviously, I must be missing something obvious, although i am at a loss as to what that may be based on the settings I can see. Thanks for any assistance.
