Troubles in Active Directory with Windows Server 2016 and Windows 10

Last Modified: 2018-12-14
For several months I have the difficulty on Windows 10 clients that group policies are suddenly no longer read. 'gpresult -r' shows that the logged user no have RSoP Data. Deleting the files under C:\Windows\security\database\*.* also removing the entries under 'HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy\History' usually brings only short-term relaxation ...
Who has a tip for me?

Whenever the issue arise are you getting trust relationship error? IS this happens to all computers or any specific machines?
Check on the machine which you have a problem should have allthese entries. To view yo uhave to use ADSIEDIT.

Please share and upload the outputfile.html of the following command which needs to be executed on an elevated command prompt on a client:
gpresult /h %temp%\outputfile.html

Running Symantec Antivirus? Either way, you need to exempt the correct files from your Anti-Virus


Many thanks at all. All your inputs are helpful, but I think it's a 'bigger problem' with Windows Server 2016 Standard and Windows 10 Pro/Enterprise both OS updated from August or later. We will see … We know this bad Windows 10 Version 1809!!!

You wrote "for several months", so the problems have been with the previous version as well, not only 1809. Be so kind and share your outputfile (on an elevated command prompt, run gpresult /h %temp%\outputfile.html) and I am sure we can make some progress.


Thank you McMnife
You're right. My Lab has had Windows Server 2016 with newest Windows Updates and Windows 10 1803  with newest Updates.
Because I don't have had enough time, I build a new LAB with Windows Server 2012 R2 (inkl. all Updates) and Windows 10 1803 (updating 1808). And now: I don't have Troubles. Sorry, when I don't bringing your ordered gpresult-Report. I was under pressure on my workplace.

I did not solve your question, so you shouldn't accept it as solution, but rather you own comment with your workaround. You could request moderator attention to change your choice.
