Group policy is not applying

    Question

  • I have some group policy objects that are not applying.  It seems they are being filtered out rather than denied, but I cannot figure out why.  The idea is that slightly different settings for the same application need to be applied on a team by tream basis, so I have created slightly different sets of registry keys and set them up as GP objects. I have then removed 'Auhthenticated Users' from the security filtering, and added in the relevant team for each object. When I run the Group Policy Results for a user that I know is in the applied security group, the GP object does not appear in either the applied or denied group. If I add the 'Authenticated Users' back in to the filtering, the object gets applied to the user correctly, but it would also be applied to all other users. I have tried enforcing the policy, with no effect. I have tried moving the policy to different places in the tree, and I have tried creating new security groups under the OU that the object is applied to, again with no effect. I am now out of ideas. Does anyone have any thought on why this is not working??

    Many thanks

    Chris

  • Actually, I have trawled high and low through the internet, and various forums, trying to find a resolution to this, and they all said the same thing - all the things I had already tried.  After 3 days of searching, I decided to post a request myself, and, finally, I have the answer, so thanks for that!!!
