My first of many postings :-D, I am trying to drill group policy into my brain but it getting a little frustrating reading books that have got a 1000+ pages on this topic. So time to ask the professionals :)
I have created a group policy and linked it to the OU that I want to test, I am using server 2003 and GPMC by the way. Now I have set a simple lockout policy (2 attempts) for the computer config and just put a random title on internet explorer for a user setting.
I tried 3 duff passwords and then the correct password and I was still able to logon? how come?. I opened IE and the title was showing the title that I had typed so some of the GP was applied.
Back to the gpmc, on the settings tab of the policy it is showing the lockout policy as applied, but if I run the GP results wizard on the pc and user I am using it is saying computer settings are not defined?
