RSAT for Windows 7 - error viewing group policy settings for software restrictions
In Win 2008 R2 I used the GPMC to edit a GPO that contained the software restriction policy. Now, when trying to view the report in its HTML format I get an error.
When I check this on a Win 2003 server it won't display the report. When I edit something so insignificant within the GPO, it works and everything is back to normal.An error has occurred while collecting data for Software Restriction Policy
This error impacts the following settings:
Software Restriction Policies
Software Restriction Policies/Security Levels
Software Restriction Policies/Additional Rules
The following errors apply to all of the above settings:
However, the quoted problem remains on 2008 R2. What's gotten 2008 R2 to not display things right? Any ideas?
I've attached a screenshot to show you it doesn't display things right.
Same problem here, usings a Windows 7 client to manage the GPO on a Windows 2003 domain.
Seems to be a common problem once you start to search for this issue online.
Luckily it just seems to be a cosmetic error, as all the settings are still shown under 'Extra Registry Settings'.
Even if it's a cosmetic error, some folks might not know what changes they made because extra settings isn't self-explanatory.
