Hi,
I am planning a printer deployment group policy preferences using user settings.
I have crated a test OU, and group, added my self to the group and created the GPP. The preference is applying to the test OU only and I have added the group to the security filtering of the preference. My user account is the only member of the security group. I have removed authenticated users from the filter list.

What I am finding is that when I am a member of the group the preference doesn't apply.
If I add my user account directly into the OU it is applied.

Domain functional level is server 2008.


Can anyone help explain why the policy  will not apply to the group?

Thanks.

GPP only can be linked to site, domain, and OU.
