You've got a lot going on there Zach. A lot of problems. Did you set a bunch
of service permissions using security policy? IF so, you might have
inadvertantly locked things down too much. For example--did you stop the
TCP/IP NetBIOS helper service on the clients? If so, that service is
required for proper GP Processing. Without it, things just fail.

Darren and everyone,

Sorry.  I was under the assumption that information was stored in the
reg.pol file.  I will look over your paper to learn more about the storage
of GPO information.  I am seeing one SceCli error, but it looks like it is
related to service.  The errors I see are these:

Event Type:     Error

The only error in the winlogon.log is this:

Warning 5: Access is denied.
        Error opening TlntSvr.
Warning 5: Access is denied.
        Error opening TlntSvr.

Where is that information stored?  I assume that is telnet?

We are also seeing this error from time to time:

I don't know if this is related, but I thought I would include it:

Well, stuff under Windows Settings by and large don't store their settings
in the registry.pol file, which would explain why you aren't seeing them
there (check out my whitepaper on GP Storage at
www.gpoguy.com/faqs/gpstorage.htm). 

The Do not display last logon setting is a security policy and so stores
itself in gpttmpl.inf in the GPT in SYSVOL. In any case, you're saying that
those security policies aren't applying. Have you run RSOP on the client
computers to verify that the client thinks its processing those security
policies? Also, check the application event log for errors related to the
Source: SCECLI (the Security CSE).

Darren,

No.  The options are showing, however, no matter what I edit, nothing
reflects inside the reg.pol file, or the actual settings being applied the
machine.  No errors occur when I change a settings, lets say, Do not Display
the Last User Logon.  I have that enabled, but the setting does not apply to
the machine, even though other settings from the same GPO do apply.  In
fact, anything from the Computer Config|Windows Settings area of the GPO do
not apply.

Zach-
Do you mean that stuff under Computer Config|Windows Settings is not being
show in GP Editor? If so then check out KB # 555218. If not, let us know.

Hello everyone.  I have quite a problem.  For some reason, none of my
settings under Computer Configuration->Windows Settings is being added to
any of my Group Policies.  Does anyone know why this might be happening?
We're running Windows Server 2003, if that helps.

I check the reg.pol file to see if changes are made, but the settings do not
show.  Also, when I have the reg.pol open, I can apply settings from this
folder, however, if you do any other settings, GPO Editor will complain and
say that the file is in use.


Very strange.  This problem, just started happening a week or so ago without
any reason that I know of.  Any help would be great appreciated.

Thank you for your time,

Zach
