GPO not processing all items

Hi Guys, i have created some registry entries in an existing policy under User Config and have found that the keys are not applying at all even though they are showing as entered in the policy.

I have run gpupdate /force as well as rebooted the server but to no avail.  When i perform a Group Policy Results wizard for my test user on the server, it says that it has successfully applied the GPO including all of the settings but they are not.

Does anyone know why this might be?  Your help is apprecaited

Running on Windows Server 2008 R2

Regards,

A little more information would be helpful. What is the client OS? How are you pushing out these registry settings (preferences? or a custom adm file?) What registry settings did you change or add? These are all important questions that need to be answered to even begin to troubleshoot.

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings
REG D_WORD: MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server Value: 16 (decimal)

no extra settings

Client OS is the same as Server OS, Windows Server 2008 R2

They are being applied through User Config\Preferences\Windows Settings\Registry

From what i can see from the results wizard, there are AD (150), Sysvol (150) being applied however, the Policy itself has AD (150), Sysvol (158).  

thanks,

Just Apply this policy on OU containing 2008 R2 server object instead of users.
You may use GPO security filtering so that policy can be applied to single server computer only even if OU contains multiple server accounts

Also in same GPO enable loopback processing in replace mode, so no matter who will logon to server will get those polices (registries)

Loop back processing setting can be found in Computer config\administrative templates\system\group policy

gpresult /h %userprofile%\desktop\gpresult.html

This will give you a nice pretty HTML file on your desktop that will tell you what is happening wrt your GPOs.  What does gpresult.html say about your GPO?

Is this still an issue for you? I noticed something from your previous post that your Group Policy Container and Template version are not in sync...  AD (150), Sysvol (158).  

The Sysvol contain your ADM files, scripts registry entries etc...

Are you other group policies working OK.

CAn you please do a AD health check just to make sure you are not having any replication issues.

Please upload the following results..

dcdiag /v /e >C:\dcdiag.txt

ok, so after some major testing and some changes to permissions, i can say that all of the GPO settings are showing as applied however, when i run the results wizard there seems to be some confusion.

when i check the summary of applied GPO's it shows my GPO applied with all settings in AD and Sysvol showing the same number.  However, if i check the settings tab, the settings are not in the registry section where they are listed in the GPO.

could this be due to GPO inheritance or order of GPO's?  it looks like it is in the correct order but the settings do not apply that way.  i have attached images to explain a little better.

permissions are set for 'Authenticated Users' to have Read

any feedback is appreciated

Kind Regards,
