There is a message that is shown in every report i make in Group Policy Results section of Group Policy Management Console, saying that "A fast link is detected". I followed the link in the waring, but after I read the page several times, I concluded, that I can ignore the warning.

However, I noticed that the group policies are not applied when security filtering is used untl "gpupdate /sync" is executed...

Is this related to the fast sync?

In general, can somebody explain me the consequences of fast links briefly?


I'm getting the same thing. It looks like it is just notifying you that the connection to this computer shows as a fast link, as opposed to a slow link detected. This is important if you have GPO's that are implementing on machines that are located in different regions.

Hope this helps
