I have recently been experiencing an issue when attempting to push out Group Policy updates. The updates I am attempting to apply are basically just updating parameters in .txt file that resides on a user's PC. These .txt files are used to control a program used by most all users on our domain.
This being said, when I attempt to update my PC by issuing the follow command:
Or if I log off and log back on, my .txt file is updated successfully. I checked the Windows Event Viewer logs regarding Group Policy:
Applications and Services Logs/Microsoft/Windows/Group Policy/Operational
And found numerous logs statements. It displays my account details, shows that I am connected to active directory, and lists the applicable group updates. One thing I noticed that was strange was the following:
Check out my list of applicable updates:
It also lists the following in the logs:
Where WOC_Updates is the policy that I am wanting to apply. It is a program written to perform the necessary PC updates.
On the affected PCs, I see the same account details, it shows that I am connected to active directory, and it lists the applicable group updates. However it lists a different set of applicable group updates:
It also does not list the "Starting Scripts Extension Processing." statements like in the screenshot above as it does for successful PCs.
All users are on the same domain with the same permissions to the locations being accessed. I am new to this area so any help on where to start would be greatly appreciated.
EDIT: Adding screen capture of GPO setup:
