Group Policy <Empty>

Hi All,

I have a Group Policy on Windows 2008 R2 server, simply to set the Windows Update settings for all clients.

This is on the correct OU & The machines are picking it up but it is not being applied due to it being "<Empty>"

What exactly does this mean and what have I done wrong?

Clients are Windows 7 SP1.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

WSUS settings are configured in Computer Policy. You need to apply this to the Computers Object, looks like you are applying it to users.

If your GP only has Computer configuration, then it will be Empty for users.

If your computers are located in the Computers container then you will have to apply the policy on the Site level.
