Q

Why won't my group policy take effect?

I have created an OU on a W2K AD server and applied a group policy to all the computers and users in the OU. I have verified that our DNS server is first in the DNS list on the client. The policy will not take affect on the client. I am *extremely* new to this and really know very little. Any help is appreciated. FYI, I am trying to securely lock down library computers being used by students.
Make sure the GPO is readable by the users logging into the systems. This is the most common cause of a GPO not being applied. For additional issues and troubleshooting steps, see: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;250842
