I have a rather difficult issues here. The company i work for is, as any many other companies, using an active directory envirnment. I have about 9 training profiles in their own ou. This ou has the same rights, policies, and so on as nearly all other ou`s. On our intranet we have a wmv video. While a user is logged in as one of the training profiles he/she cannot view the video. It locks windows media player up and shows the win-media process as 50% or above. I can log out of that same pc and log back in as another non-training profile and it works great. I have checked all permissions, policies, and so on with the training profiles and they are all the same as nearly all other users. I even went to the extreme and gave one of the training profiles domain admin rights...still no change. I have deleted the profile out of documents and setting so windows could create a fresh one--no change. Also, I moved on of the pc`s and profiles in active directory to another ou--no change. This occurs on all of those training one else. Any suggestiong?

First you might want to post this in the Server 2003 or 2008 forums.

Second, what happens when you move one of the training users into a Non-Training OU?

Also, can you paste the GPO for that OU. You can't use the Save Report because it will save HTML and I don't think you can paste HTML in this forum. So, goto your "Settings" tab of the GPO editor and click "Show All". Then highlight every thing with the mouse and right click on the highlight. Then select "Copy Selection". Then you should be able to paste a text only version. Here is an example of one of my OUs' GPO...

Also if may want to double check your OU's "Group Policy Inheritance" tab. I am guessing that one of your default GPOs is overriding your OU's GPO. If that is the case then go into your OU's GPO and Right Click it and turn on "Enforced" so that your settings are not trumped by one of your default GPOs.

Sorry for the long answer but this is difficult to answer without being there.

P.S. You might want to redact your Domain Names like I did in mine.
