setting proxy with GPO issue

windows 2003

I have policys set up for each site we have whioch also configure the proxy settings.

theses stopped working

the policy modling wizard says its worked fine but the section with the settings is blank, although is listed.

the policy itsself is still correct and has all the settings it started off with

I am unaware of changes

but did recive a message about security between GPO and Sysvol are not consistent, click ok to rectifiy, i did click ok,  this does seem to be the cause

any ideas what to do next to repair?

I agree.  It sounds like there is a replication issue between DCs.  If the contents of SYSVOL are inconsistent between servers, this will happen.

You can force a sync any number of ways provided you have connection.  The easiest way is to restart the File Replication Service on the DC you determine to be inconsistent.

If that fails you can rebuild SYSVOL easy enough using this article:


Don't let the length of the article intimidate you - read it completely and ask questions BEFORE you start.

I think replication is working on all DCs. Did you check using Checkrepl.vbs.

hi, yes replication is fine  (one server haD AN ISSUE THIS IS RESOLVED NOW)

a new development is that the settings dissappear during the day,

a user logs on and there proxy is set

the settings will dissappear at some point during the day though
