I have just set up a server at a local youth club, im fairly new to networking, although i do know alot considering i only started in july. I have set up ADDS on a windows Server 2008 R1 (vista) machine, i have loaded so far, 5 client PC's to the domain, all running Windows 7 Pro. I need to lock an account down, and i made a group policy outlining what i want blocked and whats ok to access, and ive added the users, and the computer to the GP so it should go through, but it isnt. All DNS settigns are correct, i can log in to the account but no restrictions have been applied. I tried using the "gpupdate /force" command in CMD, and that said the policies had updated successfully, but nothing has gone through. Ive logged out and logged in, plus restarts countless times but still nothing is going through and i need help with it. I should note that Windows Server 2008 R1 has a very different GP managament system to Windows Server 2008 R2. Thanks in Advance.
