Advanced Audit Policy not applying

Hello,

I created a policy called "GPO-Audit-Monitor", and linked it to the default domain controller OU in GPMC in order to test Advanced  Audit Policy
I've also enabled "Audit: Force audit policy subcategory settings (Windows Vista or later) to override audit policy category settings"
so that advanced  audit Policy won't be overwritten by  regular audit policy.

when i connect on a DC and type gpedit.msc i notice that the advanced  audit Policy setting is still in "Not configure Status" and Audit: Force audit policy subcategory settings (Windows Vista or later) to override audit policy category settings" is enabled by GPO which means the GPO applies.

when i edit  "GPO-Audit-Monitor" from GPMC the setting are presents and the Audit: Force audit policy subcategory settings (Windows Vista or later) to override audit policy category settings" is enabled.

in the GPO Order
"GPO-Audit-Monitor" applies first and the "default domain controller policy applies second".

Why when i connect on a DC and type gpedit.msc i notice that the advanced  audit Policy setting is still in "Not configure Status" ?
does it means the policy doesn't apply ?

How can i make it apply ? How can i check it ?

Can we apply a GPO to the default domain controller OU other than the default domain controller Policy ?

Thank you

When you are auditing Active Directory Changes you apply the GPO to the Default Domain Controllers OU. When you are applying auditing to servers i.e. file servers etc. you apply these policies to the Default Domain Policy.
