  • The option is dim when I go to

     

    1. Click Start > Run, type gpedit.msc > click OK

  • Dear Customer,

    After reading your post, I still have a few questions not very clear. Please let me know some information as below:

     

    1.  Is this server a DC, member or standalone?

     

    There are many causes why a policy is not applied, so I suggest you may refer to the following steps to narrow down the root cause of this issue:

     

    1. Check the problematic client to see whether other policies in your domain have been applied.  If the client is XP, you may run "rsop.msc" (without quotation marks) to check; if the client is Win2000 or XP, you may use GPRESULT tool.  For more information, please refer to the following Microsoft Web site:

    2. Check whether the policy has been applied on other client computers in the same office.

     

    I appreciate your time and look forward to hearing from you.

     

    Sincerely,


    Tom Zhang

  • I would like to make sure your Windows Server 2008 is:

    a. A standalone server in a workgroup; or

    b. A member server in a domain; or

    c. A DC in a domain?

  • 1. If your server is domain member server, it may be affected by the domian policy

    2. After you modify the GPO, Do you reboot or run gpupdate?

    3. you can run "rsop.msc" to view which account policy to take effect on your machine.

  • Dear Customer,

     

    I just wanted to say hi, and to see how things are going. I haven't heard back from you yet and I was wondering if there are any updates on the service request.

     

    Thanks.

     

    Sincerely
