Group Policy in an OU not being applied

    Question

  • Hello,

    I have created an OU within which I have created a group, with some users.

    Then I created a GPO (called "BackgroundForSeville") for that OU to have a specific background in the desktop but the GPO does not apply and instead they are getting the general background.

    I attach an image for clarification purposes. Thanks in advance.

  • Ok. 

    The issue is simple: The user does not belong to the OU.

    I included the user into a global group, and then that group into the OU.

    Sorry about this.

    Should I remove the post ? . Thanks once again.

  • Hello,

    Have in mind when using 'group policy results' the user will have to log off/on before the you will see the change in the report. Simply changing the gpo's/links in gpmc.msc will not affect the report, until user logs on again. And, what is the result when running 'rsop' on USER1-PC as luis.olias? Do you any replication delay between domain controllers?

    To help troubleshoot, you might want to post 'rsop' resport and 'gpresult -r' output

  • Thanks Jesper.

    I logged on and off several times and with different users (all of them belong to the OU "Seville") , at different times through the day. 

    I have just run DCDiag and repadmin /replsummary and everything seems okay. There are only two DCs (it is a Lab environment).

    When you said: "...what is the result when running 'rsop' on USER1-PC as luis.olias..."  , is not that the screenshot I posted it ?

    I will come back with the outcome of "gpresult -r"

    Thanks again.

  • Now I am posting the summary of the RSPO, and I can see that the applied GPO is "Background" but not (as I was expecting) "BackgroundForSeville"
