Group Policy fails to apply, cant find OU

Hello,
I have a setup with an AD and Exchange 2013. All users and domains are setup through Exchange to keep premissions right.
I just started to apply GPO to my setup, but if I move a computer to an OU and apply a GPO to that computer it fails in computer policy, when running GPUPDATE.
Also if I make a GPO in a OU and apply a user/group to the GPO it fails in the USER policy, when running gpupdate.

The error is someting like: (Translated)
Group policy failed. Windows could not find the folder object OU=NAME, OU=NAME2, DC=NAME3, DC=NAME4

Anyone know why this is failing...? I think it has something to do with premissions or something.

Thanks.

I forgot to tell that it is on a Windows 2012 R2 Terminal server that I am getting these errors...

I create the GPO's on my AD1 server, run a GP update and everything is fine.
Switching to my Terminal server, run a gpupdate and then its fails either in user policy or computer policy.

Found the solution... Authenticated Users was removed from the OU. Everything works fine now. Closing.
