Windows 2012 domain -  I'm setting up a GPO for firewall rules and i go into:

Computer Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Windows Firewall with Advanced Security -> Inbound Rules

I configure some rules to allow Remote Assistance, I see them show up in the editor. I then close and reopen the editor and the rules are gone.

Any help would be appreciated.
