GPO error - A required attribute is missing

Hi,

We are facing a error in our environment for processing Group policy of computer settings.

Error as below:
The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows attempted to retrieve new Group P
olicy settings for this user or computer. Look in the details tab for error code
 and description. Windows will automatically retry this operation at the next re
fresh cycle. Computers joined to the domain must have proper name resolution and
 network connectivity to a domain controller for discovery of new Group Policy o
bjects and settings. An event will be logged when Group Policy is successful.

To diagnose the failure, review the event log or run GPRESULT /H GPReport.html f
rom the command line to access information about Group Policy results.

Error from Event Viewer:
