    Group Policy Preference not applying

    Hi,

    I was wondering if you can help me.

    I'm trying to roll out a simple desktop shortcut via GPP (its a user Policy), which works fine when I allow the default "authenticated users" within Scope\Security Filtering

    However, when I remove this and replace it with a Security Group (to restrict who gets the shortcut on their desktop) it ceases to work. Within the Delegation tab, I have also granted the highest level of permissions (edit settings, delete, modify security) to this security group but it didn't make any difference.

    BUT, if I remove the security groups and manually define each user in the scope\security filtering it works fine. The problem is that there are well over 200 users!

    I am using Server 2008R2 for Domain Services and the client machines are all Win7 Professional.

    Any help would be fantastic.

    I had a similar issue then other day trying to deploy a printer via GPP. I ended up getting it working by setting the scope to authenticated users as you did to get it working, then used item level targeting to filter a cess. Worked a charm

    Ive tried to filter the GPP using groups within ILT but that doesn't work either

    Again... if I manually define usernames then it works... but if I involve security groups then it doesn't work.

    Any ideas?

    Have you installed any hotfixes for GPP on the Windows 7 workstations? If not, try installing KB2561285 and see if the problem still exists.

    Yes indeed, KB2775511 includes the one I posted, so if you have that you should be OK for GPP hotfixes. The only later one I know of is Windows 8 only.
