  • Hi,

    >>The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows could not apply the registry-based policy settings for the Group Policy object

    Please check the gpo related eventlogs to see If you could get any useful information for this issue.

    windows logs->applications and services logs->Microsoft->windows->Group Policy

    Besides, please check your replication folder in sysvol , if any issue occurs, please try a non authoritative restore on the failing DC.

    Best regards,

    upon checking sysvol folder initially found one folder(C04FE840-0FC
    3-4A02-95CB-468E2F34A153) which has in error mention in the original post. was not synced since long time after syncall initiated though this folder not getting synced now.

    We manually copied the folder and now getting with other where the folder already exists with same kind of error message.
