Filtered : Not Applied (empty)


  • Hi,

    I use a lot of GPO and until now I didn't have any problem. But I create a GPO as usual and I got a very weird behavior.

    Reproducing Steps:

    1) Create a GPO and Go to : User Configuration -> Policies -> Administrative Templates -> Network -> Network Connections

    2) Modify some parameters (The thing I wanted was to restrict acces to users for network settings)

    3) Apply this GPO to an OU which contains OUs. For me, it is :

    - Workstations

           - Desktops

           - Laptops

           - ThinClients

    4) Be sure there is Authenticated Users in Delegation with Read right at least.

    5) run gpupdate /force

    6) logout/login

    7) Here appears the problem and a very weird result in gpresult /R | more

    First, the policy appears in Computers Policy Result -> it is disturbing because I set User Configuration, I sould have User result

    Second, the policy appears as Filter : Not Applied (empty). ?!

    Until now, I've created GPOs with Security Filtering for Computers Settings, and it worked great. But here, this is the first time I created a GPO with User Configuration Only, but want to be applied to all computers.

    I am completely stuck.

    I hope you will be able to help me.

    Thanks in advance,
