A device attached to the system is not functioning

    Question

  • Hello,

    I'm encountering an issue where every time I'm attempting to edit any pre-existing policy I get the message "A device attached to the system is not functioning." Has anyone experienced this before or know what it means?

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your post.

    Does this happen on every DC or is it just one particular DC?

    Also I suggest you to reboot the server to have a check.

    Please check the event log if there is any disk related or GPO related error.

    Best Regards,

    Mary Dong

  • This was occurring on all DC's. I rebooted the PDC and it fixed the problem. Thank you.
