We have a number of GPO's that aren't being applied to some computers, while other computer they are being applied just fine.

The computers are all in the correct OU as well as the users.

gpresult says it was filtered out (Empty) - yet they are applied to other computers.

Any help would be appreciated.

Disabling the firewall would be a good suggestion. I would also dis-join and re-join to the domain if that does not work.

Thanks for the quick reply guys! I'm an idiot, the computer ou and user ou where both under the ou that i was assigning the policies to. So when i do a gpresult it would show the computer gp's that were applied for the computer and then show the user gp's where filtered out. Then it showed the results for user policies vice versa.... dur.
