Hello everyone. I have a curious question, but first my environment:
Windows 2003 DC
Mixed XP x86 and 7 x64 workstations.
I have a OU in the root of my domain called "Windows 7 PC Test". I have a Win7 64x computer account and a test user account inside this OU.
We obviously have the Domain Controllers OU and within it the "Default Domain Controller Policy".
On the very top of everything is the "Default Domain Policy".
default domain policy
OU: Domain Controller
default domain controller policy
OU: Windows 7 PC Test
Win7x64 pc account
test user account
I log into the computer located inside the Windows 7 PC Test OU with Block Inheritance enabled and gpresult /r shows that the user settings applied the Default Domain Policy.
If I allow inheritance then it shows that the Default Domain Policy AND "Defaul Domain Controller Policy where applied to the user settings.
Neither of the gpresult /r show any applied Computer Settings, I am assuming cause I do not have any GPO's within the Windows 7 PC Test OU.
I am trying to test why the Win7 computers take up to 3 minutes to shutdown, when I block inheritance it takes only 15-18 seconds....no more no less. and I am trying to rule out our other GPO's which we have on other OU's. But the ones that always come up are the default domain and default controller.
So at this point why are those two policies being reported under the user IF there are zero GPO's on the Windows 7 PC Test OU. I think it's the domain controller policy causing the slow shutdown.
I am attaching a file that shows the gpresults with both inheritance and no inheritance enabled.
