INFO: The policy object does not exist.

Hi guys

I've created some policies on my domain and assigned them to proper group. However my policies aren't applied to my users. When on the Domain Controller, and doing the Group Policy Modeling I see that policy are applied from that standpoint.

At the client computer. I do a GPUPDATE /FORCE. However, when I do a GPRESULT, I get message:
INFO: The policy object does not exist.

When I look at my event viewer, I get the following error message:

Windows cannot access the file gpt.ini for GPO cn={9C5404C8-26EB-4137-886F-8E2A1FED5693},cn=policies,cn=system,DC=DNL,DC=COM. The file must be present at the location <\\DNL.COM\SysVol\DML.COM.KY\Policies\{9C5404C8-26EB-4137-886F-8E2A1FED5693}\gpt.ini>. (The system cannot find the path specified. ). Group Policy processing aborted.

Any help on this is greatly appreciated!!

From your log i  could feel that the gpi.ini file in unable to get created on the SYSVOL

Kindly check the SYSVOL  Security permissions.

I actually found that policy created on one DC is not replicated to other DC. Hence when user tried to retrieve policies, they're not there!

Any suggestion on forcing replication of GPO?
I've already went into AD Sites and Services and did a Replicate now of the objects situated in NTDS Settings.

Actually found what the problem was.
FRS service was disabled on some of the DC, which were then not replicating new policies to other DC....
