I have applied a GPO to a series of computers on a test network. It applies fine except on one Vista machine that is ignoring it.
The only setting in the GPO is to set Allow Inbound Remote Administration = Enabled
On the Vista system, I opened rsop.msc and looked in Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Network -> Network Connections -> Windows Firewall -> Domain Profile (and standard), and the State is Enabled, the GPO name is 'Default Domain Policy'
If I then go into CMD and enter
gpresult /v, and the results give a USER SETTINGS section only, not a COMPUTER SETTINGS section, so I cannot see what the status is for the GPOs as they affect computers, as I can all other systems. Also
netsh firewall show state indicates that:
Profile = Domain Group Policy Version = Windows Firewall Remote Admin Mode = Disable no ports open
The GPO is linked to the a.local domain (my domain) in Group Policy Management, so I cannot guess what is wrong.
Should they be agreeing with each other? Why would it not apply in this case? Why is there no COMPUTER SETTINGS in the
gpresult /v output?
