Please help me out on this one.
I'm having a few problems applying some group policies on windows 7 machines.
Let me explain my scenario:
I have currently upgraded my Domain Controllers from windows server 2003 to 2008.
One of the DC's I have made an in-place upgrade because of some services i could not just reinstall. The other DC, as a redundant DC + DNS I have just removed the old 2003 DC, created a new machine with windows server 2008, promoted as a DC. All my DC's are VMs.
After that, I enable the new group policy object management console to both machines.
I create a new OU with test user to test my new policies for future windows7 deployment on the network.
I edit my policy: user settings / preferences / control panel settings / start menu - I disable everything.. remove my computer, my documents, profile, search, network, control panel, etc.
I check that the policy has successfuly replicated between the two domain controllers and logon to the new account in a windows 7 professional machine.
I run gpresult /R and check that the GPO was applied. However, when I open the start menu, all items that I disabled are currently enabled.
I tried recreating this policy over and over again on different OUs and users and just keep getting the same result.
Tried to do some more testing: on a new domain, created from scratch with windows server 2008 DC's, created the policy and tested - still no result.
Is there something I'm missing?
Thank you in advance for you wise replies :)
