Group Policy Preprocessing (Networking)

Updated: January 6, 2009

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

Group Policy processing requires network connectivity to one or more domain controllers. The Group Policy service reads information from Active Directory and the sysvol share located on a domain controller. The absence of network connectivity prevents Group Policy from applying to the user or computer.

Events

Event ID Source Message

Microsoft-Windows-GroupPolicy

The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows attempted to read the file %9 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.

Microsoft-Windows-GroupPolicy

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 several hours, then contact your administrator.
