Hi,

If the source files are located on a Distributed File System (DFS) share, confirm that the machine account has sufficient NTFS and share permissions on all root replicas of the DFS root, and on all replica shares of the DFS link.

Also check application events and system events on the problematic machines.

Regards,
Arjun

After checking he event viewer logs

Error event is logged, after running gpupdate I get the following error message:
The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows attempted to read the file \\domain.local\SysVol\domain.local\Policies\{3FA16EAF-3A76-4972-88CE-1BA2435CA08E}\gpt.ini from a domain controller and was not successful. Group Policy settings may not be applied until this event is resolved. This issue may be transient and could be caused by one or more of the following:
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.

i applied this solution here


Thank you Mahesh and Arjun for your suggestions.

Thanks

Ok
Note that if you found event id 13568 (Journal wrap) on domain controller, then whatever solution you found is temporary and it will not resolve your issue permanently and then it is not recommended as well.

In that case you either need to demote / repromote DC that is facing this issue
OR
You need to undergo non authoritative restore of Sysvol on affected server
