I want to disable firewall on all computers attached to the domain as in the picture below.
The dc runs on Win 2012 Server (std, not r2)

When editing GPO "Default Domain Policy", the values can't be changed in gpmc. E.g. they don't "stick".

Then I created a new gpo, MYGPO, linked it to the domain, and edited the settings. This time the settings "stuck".
But the firewall settings does not end up on domain computers, even after restart.

I could see in a log file that MYGPO was applied to the domain computer (correct linking I assume).

What went wrong and what to do about it?
