The following GPOs were not applied because they were filtered out

I have over a dozen existing group policies in my network that work fine. I just created a new one for Windows Update settings on the computers. I've edited the Computer settings in the GP, and added the Domain Computers group and another I created (WSUS-Workstations) to the Security Filtering section. I've linked it to the OU.

Even after running gpupdate and rebooting a test system that is a member of both groups several times, the group policy is not applied.

The message is "The following GPOs were not applied because they were filtered out" and
"WSUS-workstations
    Filtering:  Denied (Security)"

I do not understand why I would get a security denial when I've added both groups to the Security Filtering.

It sounds like you have it setup right.  In the advanced settings in the ACL check for any deny entries.

Then I'd maybe take one of the groups out of the filter, run the rsop again, see if there is one group that is having issues.  Start with just the WSUS group.

Try this:
1. Create a computer OU.
2. Create a GPO with the three policy settings defined. Link the GPO to the computer OU.
3. Under Security Filter for the GPO, remove Authentic Users from the list, add the computers and users you want the GPO to apply to.

You may want to check under "Security Group Membership when Group Policy was applied" for the gpresults to verify which groups the computer thinks it is a member of.
