Group Policy "No settings defined" Server 2012 Essentials with Vista client
Posted on 2014-04-16
I have a new Dell server pre-installed with Windows 2012 Essentials. I am trying to set up group policy to set up some drive mappings.
I created a new GP, linked it to the domain (I thought essentials created some default OUs, but thats where its linked the default foulder redirection GP), set the drive mapping in the policy. It works fine on my windows 7 client, but not on a freshly installed vista client.
gpresult /h shows that the GP was applied (no wmi filters set up), however under "User Configuration" it shows "No settings defined"
How to I create GP in Srv2012Essentials to apply to a Vista? (and XP, which I havent yet tried) - I wouldn't even mind if I had to use a script, rather than the drive maps policy, but I couldn't get a logon test script to run on vista either (OK on Win7)
