Hi All,

I have created a GPO, and linked it to an OU containing
Servers only.
I have disabled the user settings for this GPO.
The only option I have changed is the event log settings.

I find that the GPO applies to the Servers, but the
settings are not changed.
i.e. If I run GPRESULT, it shows that the GPO is being
applied, but the settings are not set.
The other GPOs that are applied to this object are the
Default Domain Policy (no event log settings and NOT Set
for no override) and the local group policy (not sure
what this is, but the local poloicy does not set event
log settings).

Any ideas ??

Wierd but I have seen this before (unfortunatelly it tortured me for days).
I ended up removing the GPO from the OU. Rebooting the computers and
ensuring that the GPO is not applying and then applying the GPO again to the
OU and then rebooting the computers again. Fixed my problem :-)

Also go to the OU properties then to Group Policies then to Properties and
then to Security. Ensure that your servers are listed under there and they
have the following rights: Allow Read and Allow Apply Group Policy.

Good luck :-)
