Should GPO deployment just work?

Hi All,

Quick question I've created a Test OU on AD and put 2 test PCs in it. I then went to GPO deployment and selected to add that specific OU with the option to install on 32 / 64-bit systems. I assumed that after booting up either test machines it should just have had the GPO and install DA. 

That does not seem to be the case, nothing happens at all. Clearly I'm missing something but i'm not quite sure what. 

Sorry if the question is stupid I'm just getting used to a lot of new software in my new role.

  • Hi terry.jeyes,
    Yes, it is expected that the GPO would be applied without a problem under the circumstances that you described in your posting. You might try dropping to a command prompt on the one of the affected systems and perform the GPRESULT /R command. That should tell you if the GPO is getting applied or not. If the GPRESULT does not list the DA GPO as being applied, then you might want to check the Windows Event Viewer to see if there are any problems applying any group policy objects to the machine. If there are any policies that cannot be applied for any reason, it can prevent any other GPOs from being applied.
