Hello all - hope this is a fitting place for this.
I haved played around a bit with Mandatory Profiles and policies on Windows 7 and thought I had it working right on a previous model (windows 7 pro, 32 bit). I have some new machines (basically same thing, windows 7 pro, but now 64 bit) and I am having problems, particularly with policies. I am using the same profile I was with the other machines, and I believe I should be able to use the same policies too, but on the new machine I'm testing with, I can't seem to get a policy to hold. I have a lot of things locked down, like not showing All Programs in the start menu, etc. I log in and the stuff shows up anyway.
I can force it to work once - I log in as admin and delete the cached copy of that profile and login again and the policies seem correct. But the next time I log in, all my locked down stuff is gone. Any tips on this?
