Chat with sexy men - Gpo not updating registry

Windows could not apply the registry-based policy settings for the Group Policy object Local GPO.

Group Policy settings will not be resolved until this event is resolved.

As this customer has Direct Access deployed I knew I had to start my troubleshooting with the following command: netsh dns show state As you can tell from the screenshot above, the laptop thinks it’s outside the corporate network and has Direct Access configured and enabled.

I tried pinging various resources (on the domain) but they all failed.

View the event details for more information on the file name and path that caused the failure.

Now you might wonder, how does this gets in such a condition that group policy processing starts the fail? pi47623=2 In the comments section there’s a comment from Mike Niccum which seems to be very interesting.

You have to do it by the right steps or re-image the computer to remove the policies.

The settings I wanted to remove were "security" based such as password complexity, etc and the registry keys listed here did nothing.

Group policy will apply if it is a domain account, regardless of physical connection to the network that the domain resides on.

Try logging in as the local administrator and see if that alleviates the problem.

For info if you have this on a computer that has not been removed from the domain.

Export the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Group Policy hive then delete it.

Either via Active Directory or from the machine's System Properties/Computer Name dialog? This is true whether you are using the local admin account or not. I have computers that I've moved out of OU's that still keep OU's GPO's.
