Computer settings in group policy not being applied to an OU

rcaaron78 used Ask the Experts™
When I run gpupdate /force at the command line of my computer, I receive the following output:

User Policy update has completed successfully.
Computer policy could not be updated successfully.  The following errors were encountered:

The processing of Group Policy failed.  Windows could not locate the directory object OU=Mini7_Computers,OU=Mini7,OU=ASC,DC=mmcs,DC=army,DC=mil.  Group Policy will not be enforced until this event is resolved.  View the event details for more information on this error.

None of the domain level policies are applying.  On each of the policies, authenticated users has the rights to read and apply group policy.  Please advise.

When U check the event viewer, is there any interesting information?

Please see the following microsoft link which explains this scenario.


Thank you.  That answer led me in the right direction.  The problem was that the Authenticated Users group on one of the OU's did not have read access.  Have a good one!
