Hello everyone,

I have Domain Controllers running server 2008R2 and 2 domain members running 2012R2.
I am trying to apply group policy and keep getting the same error on both members:

Computer policy could not be updated successfully. The following errors were encountered:

The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows could not resolve the computer name. This could be caused by one of more
of the following:
a) Name Resolution failure on the current domain controller.
b) Active Directory Replication Latency (an account created on another domain controller has not replicated to the current domain controller).

First thing I thought that it is SID, so I ran sysprep again, just to make sure, but it did not helped.
Also tried:
1. renaming servers
2. re-joining the domain

Thanks in advance for any help.
