    Group Policy Network Problem

    Hi, I have a group policy problem for one single windows 7 client.
    I have Server 2008 R2, all other stations are collecting their gp no problem,

    When I run gpupdate force on the system in question, it says:
    Updating Policy...

    User Policy update has completed successfully.
    Computer policy could not be updated successfully. The following errors were enc
    ountered:

    The processing of Group Policy failed because of lack of network connectivity to
    a domain controller. This may be a transient condition. A success message would
    be generated once the machine gets connected to the domain controller and Group
    Policy has succesfully processed. If you do not see a success message for sever
    al hours, then contact your administrator.

    To diagnose the failure, review the event log or run GPRESULT /H GPReport.html f
    rom the command line to access information about Group Policy results.
    I can ping my server, the domain and the gateway from this pc. It logs in no trouble.
    Firewall is off.

    What could it be?!?!!?

    I have attached the group policy report generated. (OOps, it won't let me attach)It reports back that every gpo bar default dom pol have been denied as they are empty - this is all lies!
    And it says:
    Group Policy Infrastructure failed due to the error listed below.

    The network is not present or not started.

    Note: Due to the GP Core failure, none of the other Group Policy components processed their policy. Consequently, status information for the other components is not available
    Any help would be really good

    Hi, thanks for your suggestion. I gave it a go, and rebooted, but still the same message.

    An update on this.... it seems to be working now, since I removed it from the domain, deleted the pc from active dir and then re-joined to domain.
    Strange..
