I'm trying to implement group policies using the netlogon share with a
WIN05c client, Samba 2.0.3 server running on Slackware 3.6 linux.
I've implemented group policies before using a WinNT 4.0 PDC server
by doing the following.
1. Installing the policy editor on the Win95c client and importing
grouppol.reg into the registry by doing the following sequence.
Control Panel/Add Remove Programs/Windows Setup/Have Disk
Selecting the Group Policies and Systems Policy Editor check boxes, and
2. I also had to make sure that my groups on the WINNT PDC were GLOBAL
3. I then proceeded to create/edit the config.pol file with the policies
the GLOBAL groups mentioned in step 2.
4. Placing the config.pol file in the netlogon share of the PDC.
I know the WIN95c client is reading the config.pol file because user
I also know my groups are defined correctly because my group logon scripts
are executing correctly.
The only thing I can think of is that my Win95c client doesn't see the
as GLOBAL and thus ignores the policy.
Any ideas ?
Thanks in advance
I've included the smb.conf file.
