Hello All

I have 3 Domain controllers located in 3 different sites connected across a high speed wan. We started to experience a issue today where group policies were not applying correctly. I rand repadmin and all looks good, I ran replmon and noted that the Directory Partitions looked correct during replication, however group policy was not updating as the versions were off. I now note that when I create a policy on the DC that holds the PDC Emulator role the GP is created correctly and when I force replication the GP replicates however I am unable to edit the policy as it tells me that the system cannot find the object.I would appreciate any advice.

Do your 1058 and/or 1030 event errors go away?

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
