The reason for the issue is that the “Preference” settings now configurable in Group Policy require the installation of Group Policy Client Side Extensions (CSE) on Windows XP and Windows 2003 Server machines.
Once these are installed, the GP preferences will apply as they should.
His personal website at a great deal of information, articles, and guides related to network administration, network security, packet analysis, and general information technology.
Event logs are useful for tracking problems that are caused by this type of hierarchical dependency. The report also gives information about Security Settings, and connection and proxy settings for IE Maintenance. Use gpupdate, which causes policy to be refreshed immediately and permits certain options to be specified on the command line.
Gpupdate replaces and improves on the Windows2000 command secedit /refreshpolicy.

Did not realize Server 2012 did not support Windows XP Client machines. Been up all night on this one so any help would be greatly appreciated.
I just built a server with 24Gigs of Ram, 2 Quad Core CPUs and 6 hard drives in a RAID 10 Array (2hot swap) inside an Intel SR1625URR rack mount. I'm trying to add the client machines to the new domain and it's not working.
Win2K introduced software installation to Group Policy and provided even more granular control, but an Active Directory (AD) infrastructure is required.
