Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:

  • You configure an item-level targeting security group filter in Group Policy Preferences in a Windows Server 2008-based or Windows Server 2008 R2-based domain.

  • You add a user who is a member of a global group to the local administrators group.

  • You select the Remove this item when it is no longer applied check box on the Common tab in Group Policy Preferences.

  • The settings in Group Policy Preferences are applied when the user logs on, and the user is added to the local administrators group.

  • You remove the user from the global group.

In this scenario, the user is not removed from the local administrators group.

Cause

This issue occurs because the Group Policy Preferences client extension passes the group name when you remove the user from the global group.
