I was wondering if someone could advise me on a frustrating group policy problem that I am having. Specifically the policy is not getting applied because it is being "filtered out. (gpresult)" Under the group policy results section in group management console the reason for it being denied is that the policy is "empty."
The policy is being used on a test OU in my AD. The purpose of the policy is to change the local admin password for domain users via Startup script.
It is being applied to a fresh 2003 machine service pack 2 no firewall.
Forcing the group policy i.e gpupdate /force or gpupdate on client.. doesnt do the trick. i have also tried enforcing the policy in the Group Policy managment console and also blocking inheritance. There are no conflicting rules plus no errors in the Client Event log. All there is is a listing saying Group Policy has been applied successfully. I have also tried re-creating the policy.
I'd appreciate any tips on what I can do to make the policy work
