Create a new GPO and when the is executed it reports

Failed to load Group Policy Template'/var/opt/novell/xad/sysvol/domain/Policies/{56251674-80B1-4FB2-82B5-508A174A390D}/Machine/Microsoft/WindowsNT/SecEdit/GptTmpl.inf': No such file or directory

There are no files or directories in the /var/opt/novell/xad/sysvol/domain/Policies/{56251674-80B1-4FB2-82B5-508A174A390D}/Machine


This is a cosmetic error.

OES2SP3 will report the message as an INFO message.

Enabled a policy in the Computer Configuration section then the GptTmpl.inf is created and gposync does not return an error or the INFO message.
