I am looking to collect information on Local Group Policy, I have run GPINVENTORY on about 300 servers and extraxted the information I need sucessfully.

On  the remaining 100 servers, GPINVENTORY fails throwing bcak the following "Error, could not connect"

The firewall service is disabled on all of these servers and I am running the GPINVENTORY.EXE with full Domain Admin rights.

Can anyone make any suggestions as to what is going wrong?

Thank You!
