    1. Hello Rene, Thanks for your comments.
      To get it applied please follow below steps:
      1. Firstly apply this policy on User’s OU and Authenticated users under security filtering.
      2. Run gpresult /r to know whether policy applying in actual or not.
      3. If policy is getting applied then check whether settings inside GPO are reflecting in your policy by running command rsop.msc. Go to actual path where settings should display and check settings are reflecting or not.
      4. If settings not appearing then Go to your server and then GPO. Then go to Delegation Tab. Add Domain Computers group here with read permission only.
      5. Then run gpupdate /force and take reboot if required.
