Policies Folder. This is a hard one!

By learnasigo ·
Okay.. I had to pull my contents of the sysvol share from backup. After I did that the Policies folder under \\server\winnt\sysvol\sysvol\domain\policies

changes to Policies_NTFRS_cf89d80d and group policy doesn't work.

If I change the folder to just "Policies" group policy works fine.. but it changes it back to the Policies_NTFRS... after a short time??

anyone have ANY idea what is causing this?? I've checked the permissions and that looks correct.. is there something else I need to do???

This is covered in the technet article at;en-us;328492

I've only skimmed thru it but you apparently need to stop the frs service on any other dc's when doing an authoritative restore.....

The operating system gives each policy a unique hex number

So the default policy would be say {2D67D3F8-54DE-4171-85C2-643C2B75436D} and other policies you create would be similarly named.

I find if you rename these policies they will not work.

So I surmise that something has changed since the last backup.
