Here is my setup.
2 x Windows 2008R2 Domain Controller /DNS
1 x Windows 2012 DataCenter Domain Controller / DNS server
1 x Windows 2012 Direct Access Server
1x Windows 8 Pro workstation
As far as I can see the Direct Access Server is setup properly with all green checks. The group policies are created and I can see them in the Group policy manager. The policy are not being pushed it seems to the laptop.
When I do a gpresult it shows that the policies under filtering it shows Disabled (GPO)
I am not even sure where to start looking for logs or troubleshooting steps.
