    Hi Matei,

    I followed all the instructions you wrote and it works fine, but one thing I found is that in my original setup, all users can access their home directory from any device the logged in within the network. Now they can’t, I think it probably related to LDAP or something from the instructions you gave. Some users cannot login completely as their profile is not exist though I have not deleted any user profile.

    What might be the problem..?

    The GPO can be edited only by installing RSAT (Group Policy management) on a Windows side machine and remotely connect to Zentyal BDC.

    The enabled flag is settable in Window admin Grp Pol. Management, so I did it that way. There do seem to be some functional and menu differences between v. 3.4 and 4.1.

    Greetings Matei,

    I hit a stone wall at Step 1: #9 on this one. The Domain Module in Zentytal ver. 4.1 only has Settings in the sub-menu with no way to view/edit GPO’s or GPL’s. Nothing about this in the Forum discussions.

    • Stu says:

      Yeah they removed all of the GPO UI functionality in Zentyal 4.1 so you must use RSAT to create, edit, link or even view your GPOs now. Watch out though, there are a couple of windows updates that will prevent you from being able to connect to Zentyal with RSAT as well! There is a bunch of info about that around online.
