  • What GPO have you configured, also check if you have any security filtering configured - or WMI filtering..

  • Please check the OU where the Windows XP Pc resides on - (Make sure the configured GPO is linked to that OU)

    Also Please run gpresult /r on the windows XP PC and post the output on here. (Or upload to skydrive) .

  • Hi,

    Any updates?

    Before going further, could you please let me know which group policy didn’t work?

    Please run gpresult /v on the command line to have a check on XP PC, and also please make sure

    the GPO is well linked to the users’ OU.

    If the issue has been solved, it will be very kind of you to share the information since there may be

    some other guys who would encounter this same case.

    Best regards
