GPUPDATE -> "To check for errors in policy processing, review the event log."

Every time I run GPUPDATE on Server 2003 (DC, DNS, WINS, DHCP, RRAS), I get:

"To check for errors in policy processing, review the event log."

And I don't see anything significant in Event log.

Can someone please enlighten me what is this about and how to get rid of this?

run GPRESULT please, then post the output.

This could be a dns issue.

Some things that may help
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc786775.aspx

Windows Support Tool
NLTEST /DSGETDC:%Domain%
NLTEST /DCLIST:%Domain%

Run RSOP.msc as well to see if it's picking anything up.

You also can check the Windows\Security\Logs as there are a few GP log files in there.

Regarding RSOP.MSC, I geet a load of errors upon starting or clicking to _anything_ inside.

Here is the screenshot.

I would like to emphasize that this is a fresh installation of 2003/DC, etc.

RSOP.MSC - update / no scropt errors upon rester. I am going for one more restart. (Hideously long lasting 10-15 minutes for all the hardware and system to boot up.)

Everything looks fine....

The GPRESULT confirms that there are two policies being applied, and there are no errors in your event log.

This message appears to be informational....it appears when I run gpupdate on my DC's as well.

Make sure you have all the necessary service packs and updates applied to this box.... not sure why that snap-in isn't working for you, but if you have no actual problems with policy being applied, then you should be good to go.

Also, you can install GPMC Group policy management console on an xp machine to do get at the RSOP.

OK. I don't know why, but it seems everything is OK for now.

I've done a lot more configuring, restarting and working with GPOs and no problems at all.

Will post back.
