Hello there,

So my problem is that I've been working with a few servers and I've done the same with all of them but there are 5 Servers that won't show the gpo I've added when I do "gpresult" so it seems like is not updating and getting the gpo even if I /force the servers to update. Is there any other way to make a server update and get the gpo's I've added?

Are you seeing any errors or warnings in your event logs?
Are those servers in a separate OU?   Are there other machines in their OU that are receiving the policies with no issues?
Another thing is to crank up logging and that may help figure out why this is happening.

What does gpresult actually say?  Is the policy being filtered out?  Are these servers in an OU with Block Inheritance set?

The Policy is being filtered out in the USER SETTINGS cause it's empty which it shouldn't be a problem because is empty in all the other servers as well, on COMPUTER SETTINGS it under the "Applied Group Policy Objects", Event Viewer shows up that Policy has been applied successfully.

Do you have another policy that is applying effectively overwriting the settings?
