    Help with Group Policies etc.

    Hi,

    I am setting up a server for a family members business (Server 2008) I need to create a Group Policy to force the standard windows classic theme, disable right click etc. Also to set up remoteapps, I have tried to create the policy but it isnt on the staffs pc's

    So far I have:

    created a new OU with the staff in
    used the Group Policy Management tool to create the policy for users

    but nothing seems to be working

    thanks

    chris

    Is anything logged client side in Event Viewer or on the server in the same place?

    Are the times in sync?

    What happens if you run gpupdate /force ?

    Does gpresults tell you anything on the client?

    Get the time within 5 minute of each or identical and give it another whirl!
    Check all ip settings are coming through dhcp correctly!
    could be dns issue though!

    You may also want to check that you have exceptions in the firewall to allow ICMP requests.
