Group Policy Status mixed enviroment

I have recently installed a new server 2012 R2 member server in a Windows 2008 R2 domain. I'm using the new group policy console and the new status option (has my policy replicated to all DC's, is it healthy etc).

Some things I've noticed:
- GPMC keeps claiming that SYSVOL and AD are out of sync
- This happens only on the 2012 member server not with 2008 GPMC

Are there pre-requisites that need to be met so GPMC 2012 R2 works ok in the 2008 R2 environment? I did find a KB for 2012 (not R2) and a hotfix that describes the issue but the hotfix is not for R2 and can't be installed.

Can you post the snapshot of the error being recieved
Additionaly post repadmin /replsum and dcdiag /q /e

I have attached the errror I get when I run a GP RSOP from the 2012 GPMC console. I get this for each GPO.

I'm not attaching DCDIAG od REPADMIN - I've run these and there are no errors. If I run RSOP on the 2008 GPMC I don't get the policy errrors.

The hotfix is for 2012 only.... I have 2012 R2. The hotfix cannot be installed.

Check your Microsoft.grouppolicy.reporting.dll file version...It should not be below 6.2.9200.20764

It's most likely a version issue - I'll have to wait for the KB to be updated to include R2.
