   The main problem i am facing is that the group policy setting done
in the server regarding giving access to files/folders for certain set
of users/groups doesn't come into effect in the client machine...

I have done the following steps for doing Group policy settings..:-

1> I have created an Organizational Unit(OU) in the active directory
users and computers and have created 2 to 3 users under it.

2> I have linked a group policy object to this Organizational
This group policy object has the Group Policy setting for giving
file/folder access to certain users/groups.

when i logon as one of the user under the same domain, only the NTFS
permissions come into effect and not the Group policy setting. I am
not getting the combined effect of both...
To be clear, I have given read access permissions to only
administrator using NTFS and has given read access permission to
another user using group policy setting.
Now..If i logon as administrator in the client machine,i am able to
access the files ..but if i logon as another user,i am not able to
access any files(this means that Group policy setting is not coming
into effect).

According to me, the combined effect of NTFS and Group policy setting
has to come into picture in the client machine...right?

Am i missing some setting here?

Thanx in advance
