GPO - Computer Configuration is not updating on Windows 7 Client


  • Hi All,

    Recently i have upgraded my DCs from 2003 to 2012 , (i have two DCs). After the upgradation i have notice that the group policies are not working the proper way. User configurations are happening but the computer configuration is not updating.

    I would appreciate if somebody can help me on this. Please see the below result when i ran gpupdate.


    Updating Policy... User Policy update has completed successfully.

    Computer policy could not be updated successfully. The following errors were enc ountered: The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows attempted to read the file \\\sysvol\\Policies\{88A6D798-7949-4F1B-A0E0-CBEDE0416F65}\gpt.ini from a domain controller and was not successful. Group Policy s ettings may not be applied until this event is resolved. This issue may be trans ient and could be caused by one or more of the following: a) Name Resolution/Network Connectivity to the current domain controller. b) File Replication Service Latency (a file created on another domain controller  has not replicated to the current domain controller). c) The Distributed File System (DFS) client has been disabled. To diagnose the failure, review the event log or run GPRESULT /H GPReport.html f rom the command line to access information about Group Policy results.
