Deep Freeze and Group Policy

0 pts.
Tags:

I am a CIS student doing a CWE at a local nonprofit org. Our network is comprised of two 2000 Advanced Servers and four XP Professional clients. We are using Active Directory and have put a group policy into effect. We installed Deep Freeze on the client computers. Deep Freeze will work on users located in the default AD container for users but will not work on users located in the GPO. I've searched the group policy for any configurations that may conflict with Deep Freeze but haven't been able to find anything. Does anyone know of any group policy configurations that may be causing the problem?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Do you mean when you move users to a new OU it won’t work? Use the Group Policy Management Console to model the policy results. What does your policy do? Also, remember the default domain policy in 2000 servers has a tendency to override downstream policies. Personally I think Deep Freeze creates more effort than it saves. If you use policies correctly it’s entirely unnecessary.

    Check the permission in the parent container and see if the inherited permissions are not in conflict with the GPO

    Try getting the result of the GPO, and see what GPO has been applied, check against them to see which one could be causing the problems. You could also contact the Faronics support teams, I found them to be very helpful.

    Thanks everyone for all these suggestions. I am not scheduled to be at the site until tomorrow. I'll go through these and let you know. One additional comment I didn't think to mention before hand: the network was set up by previous admins as having one account called "Public" that all guest users use. Additionally, "Public" uses a roaming profile. Maybe these conditions are contributing to the problem?

    Assuming it has a mandatory profile and you don't mind everyone in the world knowing the password and using the account to access your servers and browse your data. Do you at least restrict where and when it connects and is locked down to teh hilt? If not, I could do with somewhere to host pornography and a mail relay, your network sounds like the ideal place.
