Unable to apply Group Policy due to Filtering: Denied (Security)


Can anyone here please assist me in troubleshooting the Group Policy issue where it is showing like the below:
 Apply Outlook Signature (User Policy)
            Filtering:  Denied (Security)

Open in new window

I have done:
1. Added the user to the proper AD security group called "Corporate User" where this group is then added as the Security filtering under the Scope tab.

2. Added the same AD security group called "Corporate User" into the Delegation tab.

But somehow the GPO is not applied successfully and GPresult /R shows: Filtering:  Denied (Security)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I guess you did remove the "Authenticated Users" from the Security Filtering, so that now only "Corporate User" is left?
Add "Domain Computers" with at least Read permissions to the GPO as well; this is required since the security update KB3163622 (by design, not a bug!).

So I guess it can fix this issue not making it any worst?
Yes, giving the computer account(s) Read access will solve this. Been there, done that.

OK, so for the below Group Policy Object:

For User Policy enabled [Computer Policy disabled] with the Security Filtering, the below must be added as minimal:
AD security group where the user account is residing.
Authenticated Users
Domain Computers
Delegation tab must contain:
AD security group where the user account is residing - Read From Security Filtering
Authenticated Users - Read From Security Filtering
Domain Computers - Read From Security Filtering

what about for the other GPO, Computer Policy enabled [User Policy disabled] with the Security Filtering ?
If you want to restrict a User GPO to a group of users, all you need in Security Filtering is the group.
Then either ...
- If the GPO only has User policies, you can just add the group "Domain Computers" in Security Filtering as well.
- Add the group "Domain Computers" in the Delegation tab with only Read permissions.

For Computer policies, nothing changed with that hotfix.

Security Filtering is just a simplified view of the Delegation tab.
