  • Hi Rafael,

    >>I can validate users with my domain but does not apply domain GPOs.

    Domain GPOs applied to domain users & computers, not workgroup users or computers.

    Please help to check if the winlogon service is running on your clients and you could ping your DC and access the sysvol shared folder.

    Besides, pls also help to check if these users or computers is in the OU, which the dedicate  GPO has been applied.

    In addition, please don't forget to run gpupdate /force & gpresult /r in clients.

    How GPO works:(better help to understanding how it works)

    Please also check if your users or computers stays in the AD OUs.
