2012 R2: Confusing "Last process time" entries in GPMC

    Question

  • Have a server that did not update the WSUS GPO settings that have been configured three weeks earlier. "gpupdate /force" applied the new settings immediately. There is not any GPO error logged in the eventlogs of the server.

    Trying to find the cause for this error without success.

    But when checking a completely different environment, the GPMC console display confusing results as well:

    Any advice, why the GPMC Console says that "security" in the example above is processed a week ago, but when clicking on "View log", the log tells that the next processing should occur 107 minutes later?

    Thank you in advance for any hint.

    "Policy processing" does not mean "Extension processing". By default,
    some extensions (like Security) only process if "something" has changed
    for them (if you changed anything in Windows-Settings/Security Settings).

    Mal ein GUTES Buch über GPOs lesen?

    NO THEY ARE NOT EVIL, if you know what you are doing: Good or bad GPOs?
    And if IT bothers me - coke bottle design refreshment :))
