GPO not applying

Last Modified: 2012-08-26
Hi all,

I have a standalone 2003 server which is a DC & I have joined 15 PCs to its Domain successfully.
I have implemented a GPO to lockdown those PCs, but the GPO isnt applying to any of the PCs.
The Link is Enabled & Enforced.
I have ran gpresult on the PCs which states that the gpo is not found.
I have made sure the securities are right i.e. Authenticated Users = Read priveleges.
I have it on the right OU, which contains accounts, Computers are in another OU.
I have only used User settings.
I dont have loopback processing enabled.
I have ran Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools using gpotools cmd which says the GPO is ok.

Has anyone else got any other suggestions?
