Hello,

 

I created on Windows Server 2016 a group policy to distribute a root CA to my employee notebooks; I tried it in a test lab and it does work, but the test is with a dc vm and a workstation vm inside the same network.

All the notebooks now are in the employees house so I tried to test distribute the gpo via the vpn connection to my office network, but it seems that the computer policy is not updated; if I do a simple gpupdate /force I obtain this:

 

Computer policy could not be updated successfully. The following errors were encountered:

The processing of Group Policy failed because of lack of network connectivity to a domain controller. This may be a transient condition. A success message would be generated once the machine gets connected to the domain controller and Group Policy has successfully processed. If you do not see a success message for several hours, then contact your administrator.
User Policy could not be updated successfully. The following errors were encountered:

A success message would be generated once the machine gets connected to the domain controller and Group Policy has successfully processed. If you do not see a success message for several hours, then contact your administrator.

To diagnose the failure, review the event log or run GPRESULT /H GPReport.html from the command line to access information about Group Policy results.

 

Where to start the troubleshooting? First of all: is it possible to distribute computer gpo via vpn?
