Attached is my gpresult report.  It was performed due to none of my GPO settings not taking.  This computer was an upgrade from home edition to Pro.  His machine appears in the correct computer OU but none of the drive mappings along with all other policies do not appear when he authenticates to the domain.  Please assist.

I am sure there is something to check at the domain controllers side. This message indicates that policy settings have been filtered out or required GPOs are not applying.

Firewall is disabled.  Another computer that just joined our domain did the same thing.   They are all in an otherwise functional computers OU.  These new ones are being filtered out for whatever reason.
