I created a new GPO to apply to a specific AD security group. This was created on a top-level OU "Org Users". There are 4 existing GPOs on this OU, so creating this was the 5th one. This new GPO "S_Pilot_GPO" was adjusted to be 1 in the link order.

This GPO sets: User Configuration->Administrative Templates->DP AD Client->Managed applications->PWM, "Managed logons" to Enabled.

(One of the existing GPOs, "DPKioskSettings", also applies the above User Configuration. Thus why I made the link order 1 for the new GPO)

The scope is applied to an AD security group "S_Pilot".

I have a user within "S_Pilot", but when they login to a device with said user this new GPO does not get applied. It is stuck getting applied with the original GPOs. rsop.msc indicates that "DPKioskSetting" is still being applied instead.

S_Pilot_GPO is linked to the OUs "Org Computers", and "Org Users". And "DPKioskSetting" is linked to "Org Computers", "Org Users", "Students", "Training Servers", and "View Desktops".

None of these GPOs are enforced.

What am I missing? Shouldn't the link order force this new GPO to override "DPKioskSetting"?

I attempted to make the new GPO Enforced, no difference.

  • If a GPO has only user settings (or only computer settings), it should only be linked to an OU containing users (or computers, as the case may be). Generally it's helpful for each GPO to only apply user or computer settings to keep things from getting confusing. Feb 6, 2018 at 18:38
  • @ToddWilcox It started off linked to just "Org Users" (a user OU) and was still not being applied.

  • Is the user who is in the S_Pilot group also inside the Org Users OU? Feb 6, 2018 at 18:41
  • @ToddWilcox Yes, they are part of that.

  • Is S_Pilot the only entity listed in the security filtering? You probably have to allow read permissions for Authenticated Users or the computer account cannot read the GPO for the user. You can grant read permissions without giving permission to apply the GPO. Feb 6, 2018 at 18:48

Did you added the 'computer' read access to your GPO in the delegation tab ? As having a filter with a security group for the GPO without the everyone's user on it break the GPO from working, as the computer can't read that filtering before it's applied or not to the user.

  • Yes, the delegation tab is set up just like all the other GPOs that are functioning just fine.

  • @Zeno You dont answer me if comuputer is there in read. As other GPO can be cached on the computer if they were working before the MS hotfix that changed that way of working with the GPO.

    Are you talking about say adding Authenticated Users in there?

  • @Zeno Yes, or adding computer read only in the delegation tab, as you applied the GPO to a group only, and that block the gpo to be read when the computer check it

If any of these are set to enforced, they will take precedence regardless of order. Set the one you want to override defaults to enforced and make sure it's actually applied to the host they are logging into.

  • None of these are enforced. Shouldn't that mean I don't need to set the new one to enforced?

  • Yep, that is what I would try. Feb 6, 2018 at 18:32
  • No luck. I did that, ran a gpupdate on the client, and no difference.
