GPOs not applying

Posted on 2016-08-25

It is a SBS 2011 Server. All Windows 10 Professional workstations. When I do a gpresult /h the only GPOs it says are applied are the Default Domain Policy and the  Folder Redirection Policy (linked to the User OU). It passes through 5 additional GPOs linked to the Domain and another 7 linked to the Computer OU but none of those 12 show up in the gpresult as being either applied or denied. It is like it isn't even looking at those 12.

Where do you start debug on something like this?

It is not the KB Microsoft released in June and there is not clear cut fix in either of those articles. As mentioned above it is not that none of the GPOs are applying. Two are. Both articles gave the impression that not of the GPOs apply.

Is there a simple procedure for downloading and installing the admx files?

Take a look at this for some detailed information about ADMX files:  Step-By-Step: Managing Windows 10 with Administrative templates

Verify you have the right templates installed, then make sure you run GPRESULT /H as an administrator or you cant read computer information.  

If you look at "Applied Group Policies" and "Denied Group Policies" in the gpresult output, what do you see?

Make sure that you have either "Authenticated Users" or "Domain Computers" added to the security filtering

What Is Threat Intelligence?

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.

It is not a result of the Microsoft Update back in June. All policies have Authenticates Users Read in Delegation.

When I do a gpresult /v I can see that the other GPOs are recognized in the list it is simple that they don't apply.

As stated above:  When I do a gpresult /h the only GPOs it says are applied are the Default Domain Policy and the  Folder Redirection Policy (linked to the User OU). It passes through 5 additional GPOs linked to the Domain and another 7 linked to the Computer OU but none of those 12 show up in the gpresult as being either applied or denied. It is like it isn't even looking at those 12.

The link to the AdmX files doesn't track either. The article says to download and copy the Admx files but the downloads are MSI and want to install the files someplace other then where it says to copy them to.

If the policies arent listed under the "applied" or "denied" section of the report, then its quite possible client-side policy processing isnt even evaluating the them.  Check SYSVOL replication to make sure the policies are available and consistent on all DCs

Also:
Take a look at the trouble policies and verify in the security tab they arent being denied by some a security group membership or something else.  When you add Authenticated Users to filtering, they automatically get read and apply, but if the objects are also in a group with an explicit deny, the policies wont even be evaluated.

Again, make sure you run gpresult in an administrator shell or you wont be able to see computer policy information.

Well.... I had a problem with gpresult in a W10 workstation early in the game and it brought back memories of where gpresult was hosed on the workstation. Just for grins I ran Group Policy Results on the server and it looked like it was supposed to. It plainly pointed out what GPO was enforced and over-riding my settings. It showed the above 12 and being applied.

So the problem was gpresult on the W10 workstation (yet again). Wow. This Windows 10 has turned in to another Vista....
