I am trying to apply 2 GPO's  to an OU with 3 test workstations.  The "Screensaver Policy", and the "Restrict all drives Policy". by the are not being applied when  run gpresult /r  I only see the "Default Domain Policy" as being applied.  I did group policy update  on the server which succeeded.   I have attached a screenshots of the GPO Settings.

Link the 2 GPO's to the OU where the Computers are located.
Make sure that the GPO settings are set for Computer and Not User.
log in to the computer and run a GPUDATE /FORCE, or Restart them.
