fix

The icon having a red circle with a diagonal red line through it means that the domain is not accessible or the domain controller could not be contacted.

A gray question mark in a white circle means that the domain is not trusting.



note
 If the red circle icon appears on a domain, it cannot function as a source or destination for a GPO migration operation.

note
The domain controller used to contact the domain is set on the General property page of the domain.  You can browse for a specific domain controler on that page or specify that the primary domain controller be used.  You could also remove and add it again.  Regardless, if GPA cannot communicate with a domain controller, it cannot use that domain as a migration target, export target, check out target, etc.
