fix

Hotfix 55482 corrects an issue with Group Policy Administrator where user accounts that are not Domain Administrators cannot export GPOs from the GP Repository to Active Directory. This hotfix resolves this issue so that Group Policy Administrator users who are not Domain Administrators can export GPOs to Active Directory from the GP Repository.

To install this hotfix, perform the following steps on each Group Policy Administrator Console computer:

  1. Close all Group Policy Administrator user interfaces.
  2. Run the GPA50000_Hotfix55482.exe file.

This hotfix modifies the faADContainerInterface.dll file. By default, Group Policy Administrator installs this file in the Program Files\NetIQ\Group Policy Administrator\Bin folder.
