Hi,

I've a problem with freshly installed computers. The don't receive any user policies that are applied to our user-ou. The computer policies are fine. My desktop hasn't been reinstalled the last half year and everything works fine on it. My laptops which i've just reinstalled, the user policies applied to the user-ou are missing. I'm logging on with the same user on the laptops as on the desktop, so there shouldn't be something wrong with the user-ou.

When i run a Group Policy Result from GPM, it doesn't even show the user-policies that are applied to our user-ou. It only shows the ones that over the user-ou.

OU:
-Company
--Computer
----Laptops
----Desktops
--Users

I've no clue how to solve this. It all happened after I upgraded two of our 3 Domain Controller to Server 2012. The last one is still 2008 R2. There are no errors in the eventlogs on the server.

I've just tried to change the primary DNS server on the laptop to point on our server 2008 R2 DC, and now all the user-policies are being applied. When they point on our server 2012 DCs, no user-policies are being applied.

Both the desktop and laptop are running Windows 7.

Isn't client side extension only for Windows XP?

If GPO linked to parent OU is applied instead of GPO linked to child OU, check the link of the GPO at the parent level if it's enforced by right-clicking the GPO-link in GPMC.

The links was fine... It was a loopback policy that was troubling me. It was working fine under Server 2008 R2, but not under server 2012. :/
