I am the software support person for a public library. On our computers for the public we use Deep Freeze version 5 which protects the hard drive from changes. When the computer is rebooted the hard drive is returned to its original state. We also use Windows XP on the workstations and Active Directory (Windows Server 2003). We are applying group policy to our public user logon through Active Directory. It appears that if a workstation is frozen and changes are made to group policy, that that workstation does not get the change. Are changes to systemwide group policy cached on the hard drive?
Last night I removed the user from the OU with the group policy. Then during the night the computers thawed and refroze according to our schedule. Then I put the user back in the OU, but the workstations are behaving as if they aren't.
Anyone have any suggestions?
