I have a problem with some new computers containing solid state drives which will not apply group policies at startup. All other PC's apply the GPO's no problem.

Manually running gpupdate /force successfully applies the GPO's.

I have set the following policies: Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon: Enabled Startup policy processing wait time: 60 seconds.

The event viewer has the following error:

The system calls to access specified file completed. 
The call failed after 1141 milliseconds.

I can access the gpt.ini file and policies folder just fine from the client.

\*\NETLOGON and \*\SYSVOL both with the following values RequireMutualAuthentication=0, RequireIntegrity=0

  • Yes I think it still is because it only does it on the PC's with SSD my other PC's I have not had to make this change. There are a couple of tablets with SSD which do the same. I cant explain it, I only know what fixed it.
