Summary

Application of Group Policy

Group Policy uses the information collected during preprocessing to apply settings to the computer or user. The Group Policy service cycles through each client-side extension, sharing the previous collected information. Each client-side extension then applies its specific policy settings to the computer or users. During this process, one or more client-side extensions may report problems when attempting to apply policy settings.

Correct time differential

To correct time differential from the client:

  • Verify that the time and time zone information on the computer are correct. A time difference greater than five minutes between the computer and the domain controller may lead to the computer failing to authenticate with the domain.

  • Force the time service on the computer to synchronize time with a domain controller by running w32tm /resync as an administrator.

  • Check the Event Viewer for other events related to time synchronization.

  • Use Kerberos troubleshooting procedures to further diagnose the problem.

To correct time differential from the domain controller:

  • Verify the time and time zone information on the computer are correct. A time difference greater than five minutes between the computer and the domain controller may lead to the computer failing to authenticate with the domain.
