The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows attempted to read the file \\domain.local\SysVol\domain.local\Policies\{449D5950-ACE9-4FCA-9657-0AD4613
A39C7}\gpt.ini from a domain controller and was not successful. Group Policy set
tings may not be applied until this event is resolved. This issue may be transie

a) Name Resolution/Network Connectivity to the current domain controller.
b) File Replication Service Latency (a file created on another domain controller
 has not replicated to the current domain controller).
c) The Distributed File System (DFS) client has been disabled.

To diagnose the failure, review the event log or invoke gpmc.msc to access infor

this is happening on a member server running windows 2008 standard as RDS on our DR site.  There was an issue with the subnet mask of the network card so this was changed/resolved.
Our other servers are updating fine using gpupdate /force....

however not all the gpo are showing on the DR site domain controller.
