    GPO not working.

    I have a test domain set up in vmware and added a machine to the domain, I have created an OU for staff and put a user in there. I have added a GPO in the properies of the OU, should the GPO now apply to the user in that OU when they log on? To test this I have enabled the remove run and help icons from start menu but they both still appear? Is there a reason for this?

    I am a noob at setting up a domain from scratch but have used AD for some time in existing networks. Can't figure out why this doesn't work.

    To test it further I have even deleted the domain default GPO incase it was overriding the OU users but that made no difference.

    Is there something dead simple I have missed that is causing the user to not be restricted?

    The user can log onto the domain usingt heir name and password fine.

    Re: GPO not working.

    Could this sort of problem be a DNS related issue? I noiced the domain was not set the role of DNS server, does it need to be in a domain environment? I think it does and this could the problem. Should the DNS role be created while creating the domain controller role? The help says it should but for some reason the role of DNA server was not created

    Just run the configure this servers wizard and select dns server as a role.

    You need working dns for ad to work correctly.
