There must be something in that policy, a template or setting that is referring to a local system where the policy was creates that is not available on the system you are connected to.

Seems I may have been a bit hasty with my reply.

Are you seeing this error on the Domain Controller?

From the DC can you run:

DCDIAG
NETDIAG

and post the results please.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Glen KnightCommented:
First thing is the server seems to have multiple network cards, some of which are not configured.  Can you disable any NIC's that are not being used.

Are there multiple NIC's configured and if so what are they used for?

Secondly,  one if the NIC's has what looks like ISP DNS servers configured, this should be configured to only use internal Windows DNS servers.  Please change this and then restart the server so all the changes take effect.

Check if TCP/IP NETBIOS helper service is started. If stopped then start the service and then open the GPMC console again.

Check the path \\yourdomain.com\sysvol\sysvol\policies\{group policy unique ID}
Does it open?

If not then Try to ping the domain name (ping yourdomain.com)
Check if the IP that is resolved belongs to a domain controller. If not, then do the following:

IPCONFIG /FLUSHDNS
NET STOP NETLOGON
REN C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\NETLOGON.DNS
REN C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\NETLOGON.DNB
NET START NETLOGON
IPCONFIG /REGISTERDNS

Again ping the domain name and see if now it resolves.
If you have multiple NIcs then check if you only have one Gateway configured.

Glen KnightCommented:
Why are you renaming the NETLOGON files?

How is this going to help? Flushing and re-registering DNS is a waste of time without first ensuring the DNS configuration is correct.

ashutoshsapreCommented:
You should have the DNS configured on the domain controller. Change the Preffered DNS server IP in the IP configuration to that of YOUR DNS server not the ISP one. Set the ISP DNS IPs in the forwarders list.

slefebvre1Commented:
Hello,

Like ashutoshsapre and demazter says, you first need to configure your network card to use your internal DNS Server.
Then you must configure forwarders on your DNS Server in order to transmit queries to your ISP.
Then, you should be able to see your policies entering  %logonserver%\sysvol\domainname\policies.
