Stuck at "Please wait for the Group Policy client..." on Windows 2008

Answers

  • Thanks Todd,

    I have since read through that post and tried out some of the resolutions to no avail. However, while reviewing the server settings again, noticed that the DMZ card of the server had higher priority than the LAN card, this has been reversed giving the LAN card higher priority, restarted the server afterwards and so far haven't experienced the issue in the last 6hours but still monitoring it.

    Will update you on the outcome.

    Best regards

  • Have you seen this thread?  Stuck at "Please wait for the Group Policy client..." on Windows 2008 R2?  In it, there are several tips an tricks offered to try, and the problem was ultimatley reported solved by removing the affected computer from the domain, and then re-joining it.

  • Thank Todd,

    The server is fine, confirmed the DMZ card was the culprit.
