  • User policies not getting updated

    Hi,

    None of the user policies are getting updated. While typing, gpupdate /force, getting the following message:

    computer Policy update has completed successfully
    User Policy could not be updated successfully. The following errors were encount
    ered:

    The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows attempted to read the file \\ABC.COM\SysVol\abc.com\Policies\{5D971646-9A99-47D8-B836-AFFFGGGFFF}\gpt.ini from a
    domain controller and was not successful. Group Policy settings may not be appli
    ed until this event is resolved. This issue may be transient and could be caused
    by one or more of the following:
    a) Name Resolution/Network Connectivity to the current domain controller.
    b) File Replication Service Latency (a file created on another domain controller
    has not replicated to the current domain controller).
    c) The Distributed File System (DFS) client has been disabled.

    To diagnose the failure, review the event log or run GPRESULT /H GPReport.html f
    rom the command line to access information about Group Policy results.


    Please help. Is there any specific port to be allowed for updating the user policy ?

    Regards,

    Also, the issue is only with the client machines in a particular site. The client machines in other sites are updating both user and computer policy without any issues.

      Did you run the commands as recommended in the output you quoted above? Can the machines access the gpt.ini file location?
