I've been trying to get some basic group policies to work but have had no success. I am attempting to run a GPO where a specific shared folder on a network server maps as a network drive. For testing purposes i have setup an OU called test in AD and assigned myself as a member. I have of course granted myself full read write capabilities to the folder and created a linked GPO and assigned the specific location on a different server. I have run gpupdate /force and logged off a client to test and it doesn't work. I have gone over multiple articles and followed each very closely as well as watched videos on this procedure which seems fairly straight forward, but it does not work. I have previously attempted creating a GPO for a firewall rule i wanted to implement regarding spiceworks and that hasn't worked either. I would like to begin implementing certain policies and securities such as mandatory password resets but since i cant get this to work i am at an impass. The environment includes the following servers and software.
*see attached for screen shot of GPO
DC - server 2013 (DNS, DHCP) - location where i attempting to apply GPO
DC - server 2008 R2 (virtual)
DC - server 2003 SP2 (soon to be phased out)
EXCHANGE 2010 - on a server 2012
FILE server - server 2003 SP2
I would appreciate any insight you guys could give me.
