Group policy is not being applied to Wireless clients.

    Question

  • Hi,

    Group policies are not applied on any of  the wireless machines. Wired machines are working fine. I have tried tweaking GP settings but results are all the same. I have gone through most of the tech-net articles and other forums Any help?

    Thanks

    What does gpresult /h <filename.htm> reveal when you examine the resultant <filename.htm> with a web browser?

    What does Windows event logs reveal when you examine the event logs for GP-related events?

    Does your WiFi network require some form of authentication? Does the authentication occur during computer startup or does it require user identity or user input?

    Group Policy Infrastructure failed due to the error listed below.
    The specified server cannot perform the requested operation. 
    Note: Due to the GP Core failure, none of the other Group Policy components processed their policy. Consequently, status information for the other components is not available.

    Additional information may have been logged. Review the Policy Events tab in the console or the application event log for events between 3/14/2017 4:02:01 PM and 3/14/2017 4:02:02 PM.

    2. Nothing really all the logs under Group Policy>Operational are informative, no warnings or errors.

    3. Only Keyphrase is required. after the user logged on to his/her machine.

    Regards.

    it seems likely that (3) is your problem then?

    after the user logs on to the client pc, and successfully authenticates to your WiFi, can gpupdate and/or background refresh, attempt retry, and does that succeed or fail?

  • no it does not. Gpupdate refresh fails even while using it with the force switch.

    bolded text, seems to be contradictory?

    if you aren't seeing specific/related events logged on the client event logs, you may need to enable deeper logging.
    e.g. https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/askds/2015/04/17/a-treatise-on-group-policy-troubleshootingnow-with-gpsvc-log-analysis/

    note that "The specified server cannot perform the requested operation", may be referring to a client-side hosting process (and not actually referring to a DC.

    Are there other issues (unrelated to GP) in the environment? e.g. have you had other AD issues? is the network layer healthy or over-utilised or excessively latent?
    Has this *ever* worked correctly? Have there been network topology changes? Any firewall or proxy or similar networking devices between the WiFi/wired networks which might be filtering traffic-types?

  • There are no topology changes of any sort. Will update you post information related to any traffic filtering device.
