Group Policy Problems After Adding New Site And 2012R2 domain controller


  • We have Server 2008 domain and have recently added a a second AD site with a new domain controller running  Server 2012R2 for that site.

    I just tried creating a new Group Policy from a Windows 7 workstation running the GPMC admin tools and noticed I could not create a new software installation group policy.  As soon as a select the msi and select advanced, I get an error that says "There is no software installation data object in Active Directory."

    I then tried logging directly into a 2008 Domain Controller to create the policy and then I received different errors.  As soon as I try to edit the policy, it says.  "Encountered an error while parsing."

    What could cause these issues?
