Hi Ronnie, I haven't used it extensively but found most of the failures where my fault, such as adding printers that didn't have drivers or adding accounts with invalid passwords. I found that by turning on group preference traces you were able to see why they were not applying. Not sure what you mean by "It looks like I am going to have to move the preference to the actual OU were the GPO is selected for these to apply". The preference exists in the GPO, so I don't understand how you can move it to an OU.

But over the last couple of days I have been tidying up shortcut preferences, and decided to move them to the top level policy of all users as not to double up as I using item level targeting and groups. It looks like the preferences only apply sometimes...has anyone else found this? It looks like I am going to have to move the preference to the actual OU were the GPO is selected for these to apply. thanks Ronnie Visit our website : www.ltai.ie __________________________________________ Lufthansa Technik Airmotive Ireland Limited.
