Security filter on GPO is different than what shows in GPRESULT

Jerry Eisener 0 Reputation points

I am having an issue with a GPO that is installing a program. I have it setup in Computer Configuration and it installs when to computer boots (before login). The security filter is all domain computers.

It worked for several PCs in the domain. However, for the PCs that didn't install the software, GPRESULT shows the security filter as being a specific computer in the domain and a specific user. I am not sure why the security filter on the DC is not being used.

The odd thing is that the PC that is showing up on the GPRESULT is the one that I originally did my testing on.

Any ideas of how to get the rest of the PCs to see the correct security filtering?

    It sounds like you are experiencing an issue with the security filtering of a Group Policy Object (GPO) that is installing a program on computers in your domain. One possible reason for this issue could be that the security filtering settings on the GPO are not being applied correctly to all computers in the domain.

    One thing you could try is to check the security filtering settings on the GPO and make sure that they are configured correctly. You can do this by opening the Group Policy Management console, finding the GPO that you want to modify, and checking the security filtering settings in the details pane. Make sure that the security group or individual objects specified in the security filtering settings are correct and that they have the appropriate permissions to apply the GPO.

    If you continue to experience issues with the GPO, you may want to try running the Group Policy Results Wizard to generate a report that shows how Group Policy is being applied to a specific computer or user. This can help you troubleshoot any issues with the GPO and determine why it is not being applied correctly.
