GPO not applying to windows 7 clients RRS feed

  • Question

  • a GPO is not applying to windows 7 clients ,creating an issue where users without domain admins cannot administer the clients. We have mixed 2008 R2 and 2016 domain controllers, with functional level 2008. This issue may have been around a long time, we only noticed once we revoked domain admin from some users. The idea was, existing GPOs would give them local admin rights. Unfortunately, the GPO with local admin , is not being applied.


    RSOP tool shows it is not being applied.

    so found this in the RSOP. 

    an error in the system log:
