Folder Redirection GPO Not Applying

I have a gpo for folder redirection on our server running 2012 r2 standard.  It is set to apply to an AD group called "folder redirection users".  It has been working fine for the past few months, but the last week or so none of the PC's show it applied when I run rsop,msc.  If I look at user configuration properties the GPO says "filtering not applied (unknown error)"

OK...  In the output file, there should be a section which shows what groups the computer was a member of...  Make sure your security group is listed there.  Group membership for computers is a little different for users...  The token which contains the membership is updated much more slowly.  If you added the computer recently, the computer may not have the membership in the token and thus cant read the policy.  

You can restart the server to immeidately update group membership or you can use klist to purge the kerberos tickets and force it without a restart:

Try running
gpresult /h output.htm

Open in new window

on one of the computers that should be applying the policy.  Make sure you run it from an administrator prompt.

That will create an output file (Open it in internet explorer and enable the active x controls when prompted).  There should be detailed information on what was applied, filtered denied etc...

(IMO) GPResult directly on the host will provide more accurate and detailed error information

So it's definitely a security filtering issue.  The gpresult shows a message "access denied: security filtering"  I have verified the group it applies to has read and apply policy permissions.  I have also tested creating a new group and applying it to that one with the same results.
