GPO not working


I am created a group policy to add bookmark for Google Chrome.

I have defined it as "users"

On filter I set the group policy to my account

I tried gpudate / froce

I rebooted my computer.

When I run gpresult, I get GPO as being inaccessible.

I don't know why this is happening.

I did have to load a special admin template for google.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

gpresult /h c:\temp\report.html

Go through the report, see what GPO's are applying and which ones aren't, this will also tell you why.  I suspect permissioning is your issue here.


I did the command you mentio  prior to posting and the resukt says gpo inaccessible

Normally with GPOs you need to create them and assign them to an Active Directory OU. That said, create a test OU in AD, move your PC into that OU, assign the GPO to that OU, force the update on the server first, then force it on the PC. If you need assistance assigning the GPO to the OU let me know and I'll send screenshots.

The same command is used for both:
Run -> cmd -> [Enter]
gpupdate /force [ENTER]

Check the result as stated above for a re[ort in a file
gpresult/ r  (to view results on the CMD screen)

Ensure Authenticated Users has read rights on the GPO policy
