When running a gupdate I receive the below error in the event log fallowd by another event log saying “Periodic policy processing failed for user domain\username in 0 seconds.”. It seems that there is something wrong with the groupolicey holding the ID (1214BEAE-D7B5-4CFA-B163-92341395C7E7). The interesting part is that going to \\domain\SysVol\domain\Policies\ there is no policy with the ID of 1214BEAE-D7B5-4CFA-B163-92341395C7E7. The issue is it seems that no grouppolicies are being applied to my computer (I have a policy that is supposed to map printers from my print server and those printers are not being mapped). If I run a gpresult /H c:\file.htm I get an html output that and under “Summery > Component Status > Component Name > Group Policy Infrastructure” it says
“Group Policy Infrastructure failed due to the error listed below.
The system cannot find the path specified.
Note: Due to the GP Core failure, none of the other Group Policy components processed their policy. Consequently, status information for the other components is not available.”
This is getting output under “Summery > Component Status > Component Name > Group Policy Infrastructure”
