  • Hi,
    Please check if the same problem is happening on the other servers.
    If not, I would suspect if the ADMX files of group policy is corrupt, in this case, you could copy the admx files from %systemroot%\PolicyDefinitions\ folder of the working server into the same path of the problematic server.
    Ad if you are using central store, you could copy or download the admx files into central store:  %systemroot%\sysvol\domain\policies\PolicyDefinitions on your domain controller.
    Please see more details about admx files from:

  • Sorry for a long waiting.

    I have tried to replace files in C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions and \\dc\sysvol\domainname\Policies\PolicyDefinitions. (As a source i have used https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=55080) Also i had a try to reinstall group policy remote management feature. ALSO i did a new additional DC in a forest with replicate.

    All of that actions did absolutely null result.
