On the client machine you can use rsop.msc. If this policy is applied to the user or computer rsop.msc will show you if it is applying correctly.

You can also check the event logs on the client for more details.

Open GPMC and run RSOP Wizard

Open up “Group Policy Management” Run>>gpmc.msc

Expand Forest if not already

Scroll to bottom and right click on “Group Policy Results”

Select “Group Policy Results Wizard”

What is the result of User A on computer B that should process the broken GPO ?
