    To check the synchronization setting for a Group Policy Object (GPO) in the domain controller server, you can follow these steps:

    Open Group Policy Management: This tool is typically found in the Administrative Tools folder.

    Find your GPO: In the left pane, navigate to your GPO. This is typically located under “Group Policy Objects” in the forest and domain containing your GPO.

    Check the Status tab: Select your GPO, right-click and choose Properties. Then, go to the Status tab. This tab shows whether the GPO is in sync between the Group Policy container and the Group Policy template.

    Check Details tab: The Details tab shows the User/Computer versioning information for the GPO. If there’s a mismatch between the domain controller’s version and the version on the client, it may indicate a replication issue.

    Use repadmin tool: You can use repadmin /showrepl command to check replication status.

    Remember, you need to have necessary permissions to perform these actions.
