  • Check if you have KB2928120 or KB2961899 installed on your server.

    I believe this has something to do with MS deprecated some of the use of GP Preferences (describe in kb2962486).

    Although this specific option does not mention in the article, I have two machine one 2012 with the update installed and one 2008 without it, and it work on the 2008 only (same error on 2012).


    Please take a moment to Vote as Helpful and/or Mark as Answer where applicable. Thanks.

  • Hi,

    What's the version of our DC, server 2012 or R2? As Idan suggested, if we have Server 2008/R2 in our environment, we can try to configure the setting there.

    Best regards,
