In addition, in general when you move machines between domains, policies get
stuck from the old domain because the new domain knows nothing about them
(and thus doesn't know to remove them). So, I do recommend that before you
move machines between domains, you move them to a "staging" OU that has no
GPOs applied to it. Let the machines process the lack of policy and then
move into a new domain. Also, you can use my freeware Clean Registry Policy
(www.sdmsoftware.com/freeware) which is designed to clean up registry policy
from computers moved from domains.

Your big mistake is using Authenticated Users.
At thee verty least with this strategy I'd use a separate security group
so you have at least a way to filter admins out. As admins are
authenticated users, you will keep running into this type of issues,
therefore I'd recommend a separate TSAPP-security group which filters
this policy.

Subject: [gptalk] Group Policy sticks after domain migration

Hi all...

Scenario:
W2K3 native mode AD domain (domain1)
W2K Terminal server locked down with GPO (computer configuration,
administrative templates, Start Menu and taskbar (among many others))
that applies to auth users.
Second GPO that disables all those lockdowns that applies only to domain
admins and enterprise admins.
Works fine. Users get nothing except the app, domain admins get
everything.

Problem:
Domain migration project. Move all member servers to W2K3 native mode AD
domain (domain2).
Now GPOs from domain 1 are still applied. Server admins cannot get into
the box. Login and get locked down desktop. Domain admins in domain2 can
get in fine, but now local admins group needs access.
Gpresult doesn't show the settings being applied. No apparent way to
remove.

Any ideas?
I'm thinking move the box back to domain1, remove GPO and force, verify
access, and then move back to domain2... Any other ideas?

Thanks!
