comment Why gpupdate fails?
@BartłomiejZarzecki It's worth mentioning that the denied GPO was another empty GPO, not the one that was added. The same result (including the denied GPO) is in DC2's report after a successful gpupdate...

comment Why gpupdate fails?
@Craig620 No, not to the Domain Controllers OU. And also computers OU is missing! I'm applying it to two OUs that contains those users, assuming those users will have these privileges on all computers they login to!

comment Why gpupdate fails?
@BartłomiejZarzecki the result showed not apparent error. Just a denied GPO. It is the same in DC2 where there's no error. I couldn't paste the entire output, is there any specific part to look for?

comment What's wrong with my Exchange Server?
@joeqwerty I don't think that was the case. I had a problem of a server that can't communicate with a DC, I found that it is communicating via an IP protocol that is not defined for the scope of our servers, so I disabled that. It wasn't random, it was based on a reasonable assumption, and I knew exactly what I altered and could reverse it if that was not the problem or if that caused another problem...

comment Test if an IP is being used in an internal network without using nmap
@joeqwerty You are right, by switched network I meant TCP/IP and that was wrong. Sometimes I forget that there are other than TCP/IP :)

comment Test if an IP is being used in an internal network without using nmap
I think arp is by default found on almost all devices that are able to communicate in a switched network. i.e. you'll find it already installed on most devices AFAIK..
