We have some member servers that are joined to our domain, but are not Windows servers. They are a mix of *nix servers. We use a piece of software from Quest that allows this to happen. Some of these *nix servers have recently stopped receiving GPO updates.
If this was a Windows environment, it would be relatively easy as you could check the client event viewer for errors, but this is not possible with the *nix systems. Additionally, something like RSOP will obviously not work either. I was wondering if there is a way to enable some group policy logging on the domain contoller, so I can see what is happening with these *nix servers. Thanks.

You won't get any detail from the DC about these clients. GP processing, even on *nix, is strictly a client operation. If I recall from my days at Quest, I believe there is a *nix command-line utility that is the equivalent of gpresult.exe. I would check with Quest on that, but there should be some way of validating that these non-Windows systems are receiving their policy.

Since you use Quest to manage the cross platform domain environment, please understand that the third party software is manufactured by a company that is independent of Microsoft. Regarding the current issue, if you want to check the result that these GPOs applied to the machines, I suggest we’d better refer to the following link to contact the Quest support for detailed information. We would get a better assistance there.
