    Does this mean that we don't want to apply the GPO to these VMs? If yes, we can use security filtering to filter out these VMs from applying the policy settings in this GPO. Besides, we can run cmd command gpresult/h report.html to collect group policy result report to check how group policy settings get applied. Note: to collect computer part policy settings, we need to run the command with administrative privileges.

    In addition, regarding security filtering, the following articles can be referred to for more information.
