I've done a windows 2012 server core installation and after having troubles applying updates (problem was solved using this <http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_other-windows_update/windows-update-error-code-8024a000/562845f3-78d5-42a0-bed5-e3fd39f01df7?auth=1>), I came across my next problem. All windows updates are applied up to the 19th of February 2013.
As mentioned the 2012 server core installation has currently no additional services installed (it is default core installation) and it is (only) a member server of our Corporate Active Directory.
I'm able to use "gpresult /r" to see group policy debugging information, but when I try to use "gpresult /h gpreport.html" I get the following error: "ERROR: The parameter is incorrect". So it is currently impossible to generate a html page. The user running the gpresult command is member of the local administrator group.
(I'm able to use the /x option (f.ex. gpresult /x gpreport.xml, this works) but not /h.)
Did anyone else experience this problem?
Is there a solution?
Thanks a lot!

I don't get this error, but I found a similar issue mentioned here: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/uk/winserverGP/thread/0848a466-9331-41a5-a69c-b2debdbcec96 and here: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/winserverGP/thread/a8756a27-b562-42ad-8782-87d284e6bcfb/
The issue was with zonemappings. I hope this helps.
Thanks a lot for replying.
Unfortunately it's not our case, we don't use zonemappings.
Though I did a search on both event ids, no results were returned.
PS C:\Windows\system32> get-eventlog system | where eventid -eq 1085
PS C:\Windows\system32> get-eventlog system | where eventid -eq 7016
Any other ideas?

The error might be caused by unregistered .dll file. Try the solution in below link:
Nope didn't help.
I've re-registered the dll with their suggested command:
for %1 in (%windir%\system32\*.dll) do regsvr32.exe /s %1
But I think that the dll registration is probably one of the problems.
If I try to launch rsop.msc on a command prompt on server 2012 core (as I mentioned previously default install without any additional features or roles),
I get the two following errors one after the other:
(an error window appears the with following error)
Class not registered
(at the command prompt where I typed, I get the following error)
Access is denied.
I even tried to add the gpmc feature (install-windowsfeature gpmc), but still unable to use rsop or gpmc, same errors as above. There are probably some dlls missing in the default install?!
