GPOs won't run on 2012 R2 AD DC with DRP

I have a very irritating problem where GPOs won't apply on my RDP users on AD DC with RDP server (TS).

There are two test policies, removal of Recycle Bin and one startup script with SUSBT command, but neither runs, and RSoP gives positive results for both.

Can anyone help?

Thanks.

UPDATE: I have tried enforcing the policies, and forced gpupdate, from admin account, but neither worked.

Removal of Recycle Bin is a user GPO, only fail on DC or on all computers? could you check your GPO link is on users container?

Yes. As applied group policy objects.

I tried "shaking" the system (restart), and the Recycle bin and some other settings work fine now, however my startup command with subst doesn't seem to work. (I will go and check permissions now)

I tried using map network drive (hosted on the same machine), and that worked with no problems.
However, using map instead subs for local usage is bad performance wise.

I solved it.

It seems that subst is not on the same permission elevation as the user, thus it is shown in another space, "invisible" to the user.

 I have ammended this by creating "permanent" registry subst by adding:

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\DOS Devices

Key:

Z:


Value:

\\??\\DRIVE:\\PATH\\PATH

It works.
