Problem with terminology: What is "admin file text"?
This is not a TS-policy, just a regular GPO set on an OU that contains the
computers in the domain.
I never use loopback. I recall hearing that using loopback is not recommended
when taking an win2k3-admin course. Was that a right thing to do?

Post your admin file text so we can take a look Sorin.  Is it a TS policy?
Does loopback have to be set for it?

Hi list,

Do you guys have any idea on what to do when a policy won't take effect?

Tried gpupdate /force and a reboot. None of which helped. The policy is set as
"enforced", so I assume the policy will be forcefully merged with the local
policies as expected.

The GPO wizards report that the GPO has taken effect, but when looking in the
registry, the key that I wanted to change is still unchanged.

FWIW, I need some settings in Office 2003 to be set to a default of my choice,
and which the users cannot change.
