Group policy not applied to new Windows 7 PCs

Hello,

I have a strange problem here with 3 new laptops running windows 7 on a 2008 domain. 1 of the group policies is not applied and is absent from RSoP and GPResult on the machine, but if I run the Group Policy Modeling Wizard for the same PC and user on the DC, the policy is shown as applied.

There are no sign of any problems in the eventlog, neither on the laptop nor on the DC!?

Other PC's running Windows 7 in the same OU have the policy applied without issues.

What could be wrong? And how can I proceed to diagnose the issue further?

Well, I found the error:
That particular policy had a security filtering to apply to only certain computers, and I hadn't added the new computers:-/

Strange that Group Policy Modeling Wizard didn't take that into account, though.
