    Printserver Failed GPUpdate

    Hi,

    Having an issue today with the printserver, when i do a Gpupdate/force its saying the user policy has updated successfully but the Computer policy could not be updated successfully..


    C:\Users\Administrator.DOMAIN>gpupdate /force
    Updating Policy...

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

    The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows attempted to read the file \\DOMAIN.local\sysvol\DOMAIN.local\Policies\{FF122 C7B-DC32-4153-A453-76451C39DCDD}\g
    pt.ini from a domain controller and was not successful. Group Policy settings may not be applied until this event is resolved. This issue may be transient and could be caused by one or more of the following:
    a) Name Resolution/Network Connectivity to the current domain controller.
    b) File Replication Service Latency (a file created on another domain controller
    has not replicated to the current domain controller).
    c) The Distributed File System (DFS) client has been disabled.

    To diagnose the failure, review the event log or invoke gpmc.msc to access infor
    mation about Group Policy results.


    If I gpupdate form any other server it works fine!

    I'm guessing (from what you're describing) you have more than one DC in your network. I suspect there may be some form of replication issue between the one server and your other servers.

    Try manually configuring which DNS server a workstation should talk to first. This should allow you to determine if there's a problem or not.

    I think that's normal to be honest.

    If you run dcdiag on the server, does it look healthy?

    So I'm right, there is a replication issue. Please check DNS is correct on all servers and their adapters to correct the issue.

    If you manually force replication through Sites and Services, does it work or give an error?

    Try clearing all event logs on the server:

    Copy/paste this and save as 'Clear event logs.bat'

    Code:
    @echo off
    FOR /F "tokens=1,2*" %%V IN ('bcdedit') DO SET adminTest=%%V
    IF (%adminTest%)==(Access) goto noAdmin
    for /F "tokens=*" %%G in ('wevtutil.exe el') DO (call :do_clear "%%G")
    echo.
    echo goto theEnd
    :do_clear
    echo clearing %1
    wevtutil.exe cl %1
    goto :eof
    :noAdmin
    exit
    Then re-run dcdiag. If you still have problems, there's a replication problem you'll still need to fix.

    If DNS looks OK, check the static DNS config on the problematic server.

    It should point to itself first, then other DNS servers second and third etc... and optionally external DNS servers last.

    What's the easiest way of finding out what GPO this is without having to go through them all

    \\DOMAIN.local\SYSVOL\DOMAIN.local\Policies\{FF122 C7B-DC32-4153-A453-76451C39DCDD}
