If you are not seeing them in RSOP then it kinda sounds like they are linked
in the wrong place but it sounds like you're saying the very same user ids
that they log into physical desktops with are being used on these VMs? What
kinds of per-user settings are you applying?

Subject: [gptalk] User policy on a VMWare instance


Hello List,

I have a developers group running a VMWare instance with the free version of
VMPlayer.  It is Xpsp2 with Visual Studio 2008 installed.  They are joined
to the domain and in an OU created for them.  I created and linked some
computer policies and need the user policies from the main corporate users
OU to apply.  When my tester does a gpresult inside the instance I can see
that none of the corporate users' policies get applied.  They aren't even
listed under "The following GPOs were not applied because they were filtered
out".  However, when he does a gpresult on the PC that is hosting the
instance they are applied successfully.  There are no special user settings
for these people logging into these instances.  All user GPOs that apply to
the regular workstation should also apply to the users logging into the
instances.  I can't see what I am missing.  Thanks in advance for any help
