    Disable shutdown and loopback GPO issue

    Hi,

    I have 3 computers at school which I want left on all the time (i.e. disable shutdown). I acchieved this through using gpo, by configuring 3 options:
    user config: admin templates: start menu: remove and prevent access to shutdown command
    AND
    computer config: window settings: security settings: local policies: shutdown
    AND
    computer config: admin templates: system/group policy: User group policy loopback processing mode (replace).

    It works fine, and shutdown options are disabled. However, I now notice that on these 3 machines only, the pupil profile system is not working- ie. it doesn't grab the redirected start menu, my documents, favourites etc (but the pupil account does grab the correct mandatory profile). If you log on as a pupil on the other machines as the same pupil account, it works fine. I've rebooted all computers several times.

    It's a win2k network with xp pro sp2 clients.

    Could it be the loopback mode? Should this be set to merge only, not replace? I don't really understand loopback, but any help would be much appreciated!

    Thanks yet again

    DOH

    Sorry to solve my own post, but merge was the right option with loopback.

    Anyway, for future surfers, this thread might be useful....
