  1. For this to work you will need the setting “Configure user Group Policy loopback processing mode” this setting needs to be Enabled and Mode: Merge.
    I chased my tale for a while trying to figure this out.

  2. Configure user Group Policy loopback processing mode – mus be enabled on default domain poliicy or it is enough for only this GPO ?
