I have a GPO that is not being applied to a server as it is being filtered due to it being "empty".

The GPO is called: WSUS_Nutfield_Servers and is under:

Domain - Nutfield - Servers

In ADUC I have one machine (RACKNAS) in this OU.

gpresult gives me:

The GPO isn't disabled, I have authenticated Users in the Security Filtering and everything looks just like all my other policies I have at other sites and in different OU's. But obviously I have made a boo boo somewhere.
