Can a Windows 8 PC apply GPO's from a Server 2003 DC?

I've joined a Windows 8 pro pc to a Server 2003 domain. Then I placed the Windows 8 computer in the same OU as all the older computers in the domain. Rebooted several times. No GPO's are applied. All other computers in the same OU get all gpo's applied. There is no filtering and the gpo should be applied to "authenticated users".

i don't think they will unless you have added the new ADMX format of GPO's

you should be able to run GPRESULTS to see any errors in processing

Of course they will. Backward compatible. The new win8/server 2012 style GPOs can be configured on your server 2003 as well: use RSAT on win8 to connect to your server and set the GPOs using the GPMC in RSAT.

To diagnose your problem: please do a group policy modeling&group policy result at the server for that win8 machine.

The gpresult on the PC shows, that no GPO's are applied. Group Policy results can't access the computer, because the firewall is enabled.

I am not a GPO expert in any stretch of the imagination, just sharing a quick solution to get network drive mappings working on Windows 8 clients.

if you run the command prompt as admin on the local PC and then run

gpresult /h results.html

then you can see what the PC is doing

Advizor, still on it? Your feedback is needed.

McKnife, the group policy results were run on the server, and the server can't connect to the client. to see the result, because the client has the firewall enabled.

irweazelwallis, I'll see, if it helps, when I run gpresult as an admin...I don't remember, if I already did this.

I'll post, when I have tried it.

if you didn't get the computer policy results then possibly not, irritating quirk with win7/8

let us know if you get something out of it

McKnifeCommented:
To run the modeling, the client is not needed, it's all done by the server, so please run the modeling part.

This issue is no priority anymore and I'm not able to use more time for investigating. THanks for the comments.
