Firewall should not block GPOs, if it is, you need to add an exception.
Run gpresult /r command on one of the affected server to see if policies are filtered out (some of them or all).
Also you can check the dc to which they are getting policies from - set logonserver
Compare it with one of the affected vs. working computer.
