GPO not applying to organisation unit in Active Directory
I've just configured and set up a brand new Windows 2008 Server. It's going to be our first AD server.
I've created a couple of test users, and I can logon to a laptop using their username / password, in the newly created domain.
I've created a organisation unit (called student) and moved the users into that OU.
I've then created a GPO, linked it to that OU and setup some test settings (prevent access to Control Panel / hide recycle bin etc etc).
However, when I logon on to the laptop, using a username that is definitely inside that OU, the Group Policy is never applied. I've tried rebooting everything, forcing Group Policy Updates, creating a new GPO from scratch, creating a new user, but nothing works.
Since I am effecitvely following a test lesson from the Fundamentals of Win Server 2008 course that I did a few weeks ago, I cannot see what I am doing wrong. Perhaps there is something else that is not setup correctly that I've forgotten, because everything else seems fine.
