Windows Firewall is using your non-domain settings

I setup special settings on my domain controller for Windows Firewall. All of my machines work with it except my laptop. When I go into the firewall settings, it reads at the bottom "Windows Firewall is using your non-domain settings". This causes the laptop to ignore these settings. Any ideas?

just curious if it has been able to communicate to a DC since you've made those changes.

you should be able to do a
gpupdate /force
or just restart the machine after you know that it is capable of communicating with a DC

I think I figured it out. I was doing a backup of the server at the time which also backs up the system state. I think that when it does this, it locks some part of the DC for a period of time which makes all of the machines on the domain unable to apply the group policies. I have had similar issues with one computer that was unable to run the login script while logging on to the DC. When I am not running the backup, all of the issues disappear. Thanks for your help.
