Appl a group plicy to an OU

I have a question about applying a group policy to an OU in Windows 2003. I have a content filter I am testing. I created an OU in active directory and added some groups to use as a test. I created a proxy policy that uses a pac file for that OU to use but it does not seem to be working. When I go into the properties of the OU and go to the group policy tab I see the policy in there. How can I check t see that the policy is being applied?

You cant just place groups in the OU. If this is a user setting you actually need to put the users in the OU. If it is a computer setting you need to put the computers in the OU.

Groups can be used for applying or filtering the policies but the actual object user/computer needs to be in the OU where the GPO is applied.

Run GPRESULT comand to see if the policy is being applied.

You may also require loopback processing to apply this to Users if its in the Computer Configuration

Thanks for the info. The users are in the groups I created and placed in the OU. The policy is for users since different users with different responsibilities log into different computers sometimes.

I will run GPRESULT and see what it says. What is loopback processing and how do I enable/apply it?
