  • GPO Applying but not working

    Hi Guys! First post!

    There is one computer on the network that doesn't seem to be working correctly with GPO. From what I can tell the GPO is being applied fine, Registry items are enabled/disabled as per GPO.
    The GPO is set to restrict access to the control panel for users.

    Through the whole of the company theres only this one machine that isn't playing ball. Any user that logs on also get access to the control panel.

    Any help is appreciated!

    Steps taken so far: gpupdate, gpupdate /sync, rejoin to domain, removed comp from AD and also rejoined to domain.

    Do you have WDS setup and running? If you do, reimage.

      Thank you for your reply and input. We don't sorry, The issue seems to be just on this one machine on our entire network. I'm reluctant to reformat but I'm strongly considering doing this unless anyone here can provide a fix.

        Ok, how long would it take to reimage?
        How long do you spend trying to fix a fault that only affects this one machine?

        As to fixing it, anything in Event Viewer? (Who knows)
        Have you used GPResult?
        What Server O/S are you using?
        Is this machine patched to the same extent as the other machines?
        Does it have any different software on it?

        Re WDS, with a GB connection, you could reimage the machine and have it automatically renamed and joined to the Domain in 20 to 30 minutes. All this is done while you are doing something while it happens. Just saying.

          We dont use WDS - I'd have to manually reformat then rejoin it to the domain.

          Nothing in Event Viewer as the GPO is applying. GPResult confirms this. Also manually checked registry items to confirm but obviously nothing is happening!
          Same software as other users

          Maybe this is just plain and simple messed up!.

            I've not had an opportunity to do this myself but maybe worth a try:

              Damn, excellent idea. I have reset to Default on a Server but didn't think about this for a workstation. NICE!

                    Hello. Also for the security settings you can run the below command as an admin. Please test both individually and let us know the outcome. Thanks.

                    secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\inf\defltbase.inf /db defltbase.sdb /verbose

                        What Event Viewer are you looking at? The Server or Workstation one?
                        1 1 was a racehorse.
                        2 2 was 1 2.

                          Every event viewer imaginable - even on my own PC at home. Still nothing!
