[Samba] GPO - Computer Policies are not applied

We just upgraded the Samba-AD from version 4.6.5 to 4.7.5. The upgrade 
threw many challenges and I will write a separate mail explaining the 
workaround that we adapted to get over them. One of the main challenges 
is GPO. While the user policy applies properly, the computer policies 
are not getting applied, rather they are erratic, On some PCs within the 
same LAN, it works, while on some, it does not. We ran the "samba-tool 
ntact sysvolcheck". It showed errors in some of the policies but it was 
fixed with "samba-tool ntacl sysvolreset". Yet, while the user policies 
works properly, computer policies does not work.

Thinking that there could be some issues with the GPO, we created a Test 
OU, created a new policy with same settings and applied them to test OU. 
Again, the user policies work but not computer policies.

Can some one guide us to get over this?


Thanks & Regards,
