I've got about a dozen remote computers (Win 10) that just do not want to connect to the domain over a VPN.  I've got a question open about there here

I don't appear to have a solution in site for this issue, so I am opening a separate question to see about another way to work around it.

I've got about a dozen or so remote computers that will never come back into the office with the domain controller.  I need to implement BitLocker without a TPM and to do that, I've made an edit to the local Group Policy.  When I go to BitLocker, it's as I never made the GP change and it gives me an error regarding requiring a TPM.  When I go to a command prompt and do an RSOP.msc, I get an error message (attached) saying

Unable to generate RSoP data.  In logging mode.  Likely causes are Group Policy has never successfully process for the computer or users.  RSoP logging was never enabled, or data is corrupt.  In planning mode.  Verify that the selected domain controller suports RSoP.

I've given up on getting these computers to try and communicate with the domain controller.  What I'm asking is there any way I can get it to look at the local GP instead of trying to get GP from the DC?  

Thanks very much
