I created a group, added users to it, put the group in an OU, and assigned a policy to it, but the policy didnt apply. Why not?
Group Policy, amazingly, doesnt apply to security groups. It applies only to the user or computer accounts in the Site, Domain, or OU. So, youll need to move the users account into the OU where the GPO is linked. Log back in as the user, and youre in business.
The GPanswers.com forum is closed now (thanks, spammers!)
But we encourage you to join us at LinkedIn in the “GPO Stuff” group.
Jeremy is regular there, and there is a reasonable system to prevent junk posts.
In all, we think it’s the right place to go for Group Policy-specific questions.
It’s a private group, but just JOIN it, and the owner should approve your request.
See you there !
