Hi Jason,


All of the User info exists under \\server\sysvol\DNSname\Policies\GUID\USER
in directories such as 


          Folder redirection - Documents & Settings  

          Scripts - Scripts

          Security -Microsoft\Windows NT\SecEdit

          Applications -Applications

          Internet Explorer - MICROSOFT\IEAK

          RIS - Microsoft\RemoteInstall


I am not sure, but it is possible that the main  RIS info is held in AD
rather than the Sysvol


So, it sounds like he cannot read the
\\server\sysvol\DNSname\Policies\GUID\USER directory, which sounds more like
server security than PC security.


Can he see the Machine Info? It sits under

Subject: [gptalk] Entries missing in GPOE under User Configuration -->
Windows Settings


Hello all,

An OU administrator in our organization says when he opens any existing 

GPOs he's created the only entry he sees under User Configuration --> 

Windows Settings is Remote Installation Services.  The entries for 

"Scripts (Logon\Logoff)", "Security Settings", "Folder Redirection", and 

"IE Maintenance" don't display.  I haven't visited him yet to take a 

look at this and don't have much more information but was hoping someone 

could suggest where to look to figure this out?  I'm not sure what files 

are read to populate those entries in the GPOE. 

This user is a member of the Group Policy Creator Owners group and has 

rights to edit setting, delete, modify security on the GPOs he's veiwing.

I'm guessing this is something permissions-related on his workstation. 

Any ideas?
