Q

How can I apply Group Policy to Windows 2000 clients?

I have defined Group Policy on a Windows 2000 Domain Controller Active Directory and joined my Windows 2000 clients to this domain. But I found that Group Policy was only applied to the DC, not to the Windows 2000 clients. Can you please let me know how to apply Group Policy to windows 2000 clients?
Well, there's not a lot of information to go on. But here's what I'm guessing you did: I bet you modified ONLY, say, the Default Domain Controller policy, and hence, no other computers got the policy. Try creating an OU, and moving some computers into that OU. Then try a test Group Policy on that OU to see if the computer picks up the policy.
