Are there protected / unchangeable settings in Azure VMs? I have an issue

Goofoff 91 Reputation points

Ok simply put, we. have an environment that the customer RDPs into a few servers.
We have one of our gpo security policies that disables certain things ( Powershell, cmd line, restricts browsers, no control panel, etc..) that is refusing to apply. I don't know why.
On Prem servers are working perfect but the azure ones, same domain, ad replication is fine, networking is up.

Any ideas why or some direction to point me in?

    It sounds like you were able to resolve the issue as it's an issue in your environment's GPOs and OUs, and not related to Azure services.

    For more information on how gpos, ous, and gplinks I suggest taking a look at this article :

    And check to see if your gpos are linked to specific ous or how you've setup your gpos to properly sync as it seems to be an issue with a specific OU in your org, and there must be some sort of configuration that is overriding your GPOs. For more information on this see :

    If you continue to experience issues with this I suggest posting this on the Windows Server forums here : as the forum is currently handling Azure AD related issues.

    If you continue to experience issues I suggest filing a support ticket with Microsoft and a support engineer will engage to help resolve your issue.
