Windows Group Policy Replication-SysVOL inaccessible

    Question

  • Hi All,

    I am working as a system administrator. We are using windows 2012 R2 as the domain controllers. We have 3 domain controllers and multiple client operating systems. Such as windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 etc. Recently i had noticed an error in GPMC as the attached image. To test the replication i created a file in sysvol folder and i found that file got replicated to all domain controllers without any errors. applied group policies also working perfectly in all clients. Please help me get rid of this error.

    Thanks everyone in advance.

  • I think there is a problem with sysvol replication or Permission.

    Can you run the gpotool command and tell me the result. GPOtool has an external command, so you need to download the ressource kit 2003 server (it's work for other os)

    You can use this link for verify the ad replication.

  • Nicolas's answer helped me in this. I have downloaded gpotool which is a part of Windows 2003 resource kit.

    After executing this command I could found out one of the policies was corrupted. I have deleted that policy and recreated it. After that no issues.
