Group Policy Preferences, Why does it sort of work?
I've been trying to impliment Group Policy prefrences on my network. I've got a 2K3 domain, a Vista SP1 machine running the RSAT and some XP machines with the client side extensions and I've been having a play.
The ultimate aim is to alter the powersetting on the computers, something preferences claims to do. But can I heck as like get it to work. Thinking that there might be some problem I tried using preferences to create a folder on the local disk. This worked. This implies that the computer is interpreting the instructions from the group policy preferences, it is NOT however changing the power scheme!
Can anybody help?
