Group Policy Management console empty on second DC

devon-lad used Ask the Experts™
Have a domain with two Win2012 R2 DCs.  

No group policy processing problems, but when opening the GP console on the second DC it is empty.

I think this started happening after the AD files were moved to a different disk on this DC.

dcdiag output all fine.

How can I troubleshoot this?

and check...

if everything is OK

complete the windows update then check...  some times it'll be management console issue ...

even you can check the event viewer..

all the best


Yes, all GPs are being applied correctly - to the DC itself as well.

No errors in the logs.

DNS and AD BPA scans don't reveal anything
Just realised if I go to Actions>Show Domains the local domain is not checked.  Checked it and now showing as normal.

Not sure what caused it to become unchecked??

Anyway, resolved.


Found solution myself.
