"No settings defined" when viewing GPOs but GPOs have settings in them
Posted on 2011-09-26
I'm finishing the migration from a 2003 DC to a 2008 DC. Everything has gone fine so far but I've found that when I open up Group Policy Management on either server and click the Settings tab of a GPO it tells me "No settings defined" for both computer and user settings. However if I actually edit the GPO and navigate through the GPO settings then I can see that everything is there.
GPO's do appear to be being applied and changes to the GPOs do appear to replicate between servers. It's just that GP Management at both ends tells me that there are no settings in the GPOs which worries me.
Has anyone seen this? Replmon says that replications are successful and DNS between teh servers is fine (one can ping the other, the other can ping back etc).
