Gpupdate vpn not updating
I've got quite a few users (all Windows 10 Pro) that work 100% remotely out of their homes.I need to push out some GP updates, but for some of the users, when I connect with the VPN and do a gpupdate /force, I'm getting the following error message. The following errors were encountered: The processing of a Group Policy failed because of lack of network connectivity to a domain controller. A success message would be generated once the machine gets connected to the domain controller and Group Policy has successfully processed.
-Server is OK as some work fine -Client may be the issue, but they seem to be configured correctly, and presumably all the same -ISP issues usually result in not being able to connect at all -Site issues "usually" are inability to access resources even though a connection is made. FYI, I connected one of the users with a completely different VPN (SSL Sonic Wall VPN) and experienced the same issue.
You could try disabling the IPv6 option just in the PPP/VPN NIC, or have you tried a working laptop at a none working client site? To properly disable IPv6 you have to do so in the registry, but that will disable it for all traffic and I would never recommend that. Otherwise, I'll be awarding you points for the effort.
If it works, great, if not try taking a working laptop to a non-working site. It may be using IPv6 to connect to your ISP's DNS server. I just opened up another question to try and work around this issue.
The only way I've been able to ping by server name is to adjust the hosts file.
Even after I do that, I am still unable to do a gpupdate /force.
