help group policy not working windows server 2008 AD


I have a server that will be used as a terminal server.  I want to create a gpo that will disable some features like shutdown, control panel for regular users but not the domain admins.

To do this I created an ou TS.. I created a security group TS.  I joined the server moved the server to the out made the server member of the security group.  I then created a Group policy linked it to TS ou then under the GP i went to delegation advanced add then choose domain admins and made sure apply policy is set to deny.

The problem is group policy didnt apply to any users at all.  I did RSOP.msc but it didnt show the changes I made under the group policy.  I tried gpupdate/force and also restarted the.

I am sure I am missing a steup most likely out to link the out to the security group or maybe out has to be linked directly to the server..

Please help

You need to configure loopback processing mode for this gpo.

The loopback setting is located under Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/System/Group Policy in the Group Policy Management Editor (GPME).
