I'm receiving an error from alot of computers when i try to run grpupdate /force. When I try and search for the file in File Explorer I get Windows cannot access \Domain\SysVol\Domain\Policies{4A9A1BC7-EA6E-4E63-9201-30D6BC1081F0}\gpt.ini. Not sure on where to start as I'm new to group policy. I've tried removing the computer from the domain and readding but still no luck.

    Hello

    Thank you for your question and reaching out. I can understand you are having query\issues related to Group policy,

    1. Open up powershell (as an administrator) from your Domain controller to find what GPO issue causing issue.

    Get-GPO -guid "{4A9A1BC7-EA6E-4E63-9201-30D6BC1081F0}" | select Displayname

    1. Edit that GPO and check if there is shared path is configured in GPO.
    2. Verify AD replication and SYSVOL folder replication is working good and all are synced.
    3. Disable any Antivirus program or Windows firewall you may have for temporary purpose.
