Machine Account Determination Problem
Group Policy preprocessing uses security to act on behalf of the computer or user. Incorrect permissions or security failures can prevent Group Policy from applying to the computer or user.
Correct computer authentication
Domain computers authenticate to the domain as do domain users. Windows requires the computer to log on before it can apply Group Policy to the computer.
Possible resolutions include:
Verify that the time on the computer is synchronized with the time on the domain controller. Account for time zone misconfigurations if the computer is configured in a time zone different from domain controller. A time difference greater than five minutes between the computer and the domain controller may lead to the computer failing to authenticate with the domain. Force time synchronization against time service using command w32tm /resync.
Restart the computer
