Hi all,

2003 domain - windows 7

I want my laptop users to be able to change the IP address of their machines. In order to do this I want to add them to the Network configurations Operators group via grou policy.

I have created a GPO at the top level of my domain (users and computers objects are placed underneath) and added the builtin\network configurations operators adding domain users to it.

The GPO is filtered by group which all laptops users are a member of.

However, the GPO is not applying.

If I run RSOP.msc i can see it is applying the correct GPO but not the restricted group.

Any ideas?

it's because it's a COMPUTER settings and so you need to include laptops' accounts (<computername>$) in a group that has access to the policy.

Users can't apply computer settings.

Authenticated users includes Computer accounts.
