Make sure it is added to the default domain policy or a new domain wide policy, not a new policy for an OU.
Also it will only take 5 minutes to be applied to the server but up to 90 minutes to be applied to the workstations (at the same site). You can force a workstation by running at a command line:   gpupdate  /force

Hi mainemonty,

what policy keys are you using and if you gpresult on the client machines is it picking up your policy?

Make sure that you're setting the policy at the right container (user vs computer). Second, if it's a user policy make sure that the user in question is in the OU as the policy or underneath it as a child. Same with Computers. Last, double check your security filtering and if you're using the default "Authenticated users" that the apply policy is enabled.

Hi there,

I used to have the same problem this is what you have to make sure off.
That all the users are in a group for the policy,
That in the policy security settings that group is added with the Apply Policy box turned on.

Now try and reboot your client computer and start up.

If then it still doesn't work, go check the event viewer of the client, if its the same problem as I had you will find out that your DNS is not configured correctly,
follow the steps in the event viewer error and after that it should work.
