Folder redirection GPO not applying

Hello everyone,
I have a strange problem.  I have configured a group policy to enable folder redirection.  The user account is in the appropriate OU and I did not change any permissions on the delegation tab.  I am able to ping the DC and ping the server that it is redirecting to by host name.  This has been tested on two different computers and it is still not working. Any ideas?

Can you take a screenshot of the policy you created for folder redirection.

if you run RSOP or use Group Policy result wizard does it looks like it is getting the policy you created?  
You can also check the clients Event Logs > Application  and Services Log > Microsoft > Windows > GroupPolicy  and see if there are any error or warnings that may point to something .

yes we did that and the new gpo is not applying to the computer.  An example of the configuration is attached.  The server is 2016 Standard and the machine we are testing with a Windows 10 pro machine.

The error message that I now get is:

The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows attempted to read the file \\domain omited.local\SysVol\domain omited.local\Policies\{CA1E4023-E6DA-40BE-A66B-FDEB746CC477}\gpt.ini from a domain controller and was not successful. Group Policy settings may not be applied until this event is resolved. This issue may be transient and could be caused by one or more of the following:
a) Name Resolution/Network Connectivity to the current domain controller.
b) File Replication Service Latency (a file created on another domain controller has not replicated to the current domain controller).
c) The Distributed File System (DFS) client has been disabled.

I looked on the computer and got event id 1058 and error code 0

We did find that there is a server in the cloud that this particular server cannot access at this time.  Would that have anything to do with this?

if that is where your folder redirection is pointing to.

The server that was not replicating seemed to be the issue.  Once we got a site to site VPN with this site and the cloud that is hosting the DC that was not replicating, the issue went away.
