Hello Raneesh,


Could you please confirm if the sysvol is fully synchronized to the new 2016 DC?

Repadmin will only show the Active Directory Database level sync status. Sysvol is using FRS or DFS for syncing.


You can navigate to the Sysvol folder on the C drive of 2016 domain controller and check if the policy path matching the GUID is synced.


If the content is synced, then look for the network layer if the required ports are allowed from the client machine to the new domain controller.


Cheers !

Can you check event log for any related errors?

Can you run repadmin /syncall to sync DCs??

Maybe you need to migrate from FRS to DFS Replication using the DFSRMIG command?

Hello Raneesh,


If you look at the error message, it says that the Computer policy has ended up in error.

While user policy got applied successfully.


That gives a different dimension for the issue.


Could you please check what is configured on the computer section of that GPO?

Is there any specific error on the domain controller related with GPOs?


Cheers !

I dont have any policies created on Default. But i have  lot of custom GPO policies created.

You could try dcgpofix to recreate the default domain policy

This is a DFS error not and AD error and recreating/resetting GPO will not fix it
