    Re: Assign GPO to computer group

    If you move one of the computers into a new ou and set the policy on that ou does that single computer apply the softwar policy as you would expect?

    Re: Assign GPO to computer group

    I've already done the gpupdate /force so it's not that. I will try the other suggestions though. Thanks.

    Re: Assign GPO to computer group

    Is it a Computer Configuration setting?

    If so it needs applying to Computers, not Users, or else it won't take effect.

    The reason I'm confused about it is you mention moving computers to OUs but also mention adding User Groups to security.

    You can't mix them both. If it's a Computer Configuration it must be linked to OUs containing computers. If it's a User Configuration then it must be linked to OUs containing Users.

    Re: Assign GPO to computer group

    I may have worded something wrong that confused you.

    It is a computer policy and it is set in the computer config section of the GPO. The OU only contains computers. The computers I want it to apply to have been added to a security group. This group has been given 'apply group policy' permission in the security filtering section of the GPMC.

    Yes, when deployed in the usual way the software installs with no problem.

    Re: Assign GPO to computer group

    gpresult turned up some answers.

    "Install Olympus Dictaphone
    Filtering: Denied (Security)"

    Now to find out why it has been denied.

    Re: Assign GPO to computer group

    Now we're getting somewhere. If I add the computer name itself to the security filtering the policy gets applied. If that computer is a member of a security group and the group is added to the security filtering the policy gets denied.

    So, my only thoughts are that computers cannot be filtered in terms of their groups?

    Does domain local or global make a difference in this instance?

    Re: Assign GPO to computer group

    Try checking the log files of a computer in the OU you are trying to depoy to. I had some issues and checked the log file and it said some errors deploying the software, then I found out that I had to reboot the machine a few times for the policy to take effect and then the software installed ok.
