GPPs not applying to XP SP3 due to slow link detection
Posted on 2013-11-04
I am having an issue with GPO and slow link. I am trying to apply some GPP’s to XP SP3 but they are not applying even after running gpupdate /force. If I do a gpresult, I get “INFO: The policy object does not exist.” When I run RSOP.msc, I get “RSoP data is invalid” with details of “Invalid namespace”. I have set the gpo to change the slow link detection to “0” for both computer side and client side in the administrative templates but it is still not applying. I’m thinking it is not applying because of the fact that the settings to update the slow link detection to 0 aren’t being passed down because of the slow link. If I add the GroupPolicyMinTransferRate change in the registry, then I can go back and run gpupdate /force and everything will work fine but only for that 1 user. The problem is I need a way to accomplish this without having to log onto for each user and make the change to HKEY_Current_User. Can someone help me with any way to get the GPP to apply or disable Slow Link Detection for each user that logs in?
