symptom
Unable to view the impact of a GPO recently created in Active Directory when performing RSoP analysis.

cause
It is likely that GPO was created on a particular domain controller which has not been replicated to other domain controllers. The Administrator or the Planning & Analysis snap-in might be connected to a different domain controller. By default, the Administrator and the Policy Auditing & Diagnostic snap-in points to the PDC emulator where as the Planning & Analysis snap-in points to the nearest domain controller.

fix

In order to point the snap-in to a different domain controller perform the following steps:

  1. Launch the Group Policy Administrator MMC console.
  2. Highlight the desired snap-in (Administrator, Planning & Analysis, or Policy Auditing & Diagnostics).
  3. Right-click and select Connect to domain.
  4. Select the Select Domain Controller radio button.
  5. Click the button next to the Domain Controller: field.
  6. Select the desired domain controller from the Choose Domain Controllers dialog box.
  7. Click OK.
  8. Click Finish.

NOTE: The above steps must be performed for each of the three snap-ins individually.
