Run gpupdate /force.

If you run RSOP (Start>Run>RSOP) on one of the workstations that has the issue .... and look to see if the policy in question has a winning GPO that you expect.  There is a chance you have a conflict and another GPO is winning.

Also .. you you see any Group Policy errors in the logs.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Tried the suggested Windows Support recommendation with no luck. Below are some more details

1- Domain Controller OS 2008 SP2

2- Client machine - Server 2012 R2 and Win 7 SP1

3- IE 11

4-First configuration - User Config\Policies\Windows Setting\Internet Explorer Maitenance\ Connection\ Auto Brower Config - Unsuccessful

Second configuration - User Config\Preferences\Control Panel Settings\Internet Settings\IE 10 - Unsuccessful

It looks like you are trying to apply an IE10 policy to IE 11.  Read through the following article about IE11 adm's and WMI filtering.  This may help

So you can navigate to \\servername.domainname and see all the shares?  But if you navigate to \\servername you cannot?  DO I understand correctly?

See the link below.  My understanding is that to manage 10 without added ADMX files, you need to be Server 2008R2 and IE 10 on the server ... however .. more info out there suggests that later Group Policy versions (2012).
