Getting an error when trying a Group Policy Update

PM006 26 Reputation points

Hi everyone,

I'm getting the following error when I'm trying a Group Policy update ( gpupdate /force) in a newly domain joined Windows 10 computer.


  • This doesn't happen with all the Windows 10 PC of the domain. Only like 2-3 computers so far.
  • The Windows build is 21H2.
  • Can Ping and reach the domain controller. The SYSVOL folder can be reached when browsed via Explorer.
  • I have tried
    -- ipconfig /flushdns , reboot, trying the gpupdate
    -- Removing the computer account from the AD, rejoining the PC to the domain and running a gpupdate

Can anyone please help me with this ?
Thank in advance! Any help is really appreciated. Let me know if you need more details.

    Please run;

    Dcdiag /v /c /d /e /s:%computername% >C:\dcdiag.log
    repadmin /showrepl >C:\repl.txt
    ipconfig /all > C:\dc1.txt
    ipconfig /all > C:\dc2.txt
    ipconfig /all > C:\dc3.txt
    ipconfig /all > C:\problemworkstation.txt

    then put unzipped text files up on OneDrive and share a link.

    Can you access the path manually from the computer ? I suspect a broken security that could prevent the computer to acccess the folder, or just a missing folder.

    If you can't access it, I suggest to recreate from stracth the GPO
