This issue occurs mostly when there is an audit .csv file in the following location c:\windows\system32\GroupPolicy\Machine\Microsoft\WindowsNT\Audit\audit.csv which needs to be deleted for the machine to receive the group policy again.  Delete the file and to a gpupdate /force and that should do it.

The server in question.   I have C:\windows\system32\GroupPolicy\Machine and then the next folder (only one) is Scripts.

I did a search for audit.csv and find it in 3 locations:

C:\Windows\Security\audit
C:\Windows\SYSVOL\domain\Policies\
C:\Windows\SYSVOL\sysvol\bwok.local\Policies\

They are all from 2012.

Delete all of them?

Mostly these error takes place when on the audit policy the SACL setting was changed.

I'm not soo sure but, the reason is, because the change itself might affect whether or not the audit is generated.  Usually in Windows, we generate audit after the operation that we are auditing, is performed.  When we generate audit, we always check audit policy to see if we need to generate an event.

Delete the file and to a gpupdate /force and that should do it.  

c:\windows\system32\GroupPolicy\Machine\Microsoft\WindowsNT\Audit\audit.csv

Contains :

Machine Name,Policy Target,Subcategory,Subcategory GUID,Inclusion Setting,Exclusion Setting,Setting Value

I hope I'm clear.
