After exporting a GPO with GPA 5.0 SP1, the GPO cannot be viewed with GPMC without an error being thrown.
Hotfix 70641 addresses an issue with Group Policy Objects (GPOs) that have been exported from the GP Repository to Active Directory (AD) when you attempt to select these GPOs with Group Policy Management Console (GPMC). Inconsistencies in permissions for the exported GPOs between the SYSVOL folder and AD cause GPMC to prompt you to make the permissions between AD and the SYSVOL folder the same.
Hotfix 70641 resolves this issue and ensures you can select exported GPOs in GPMC without having to confirm changes to the permissions in the SYSVOL folder.
Before installing this hotfix, you must install Group Policy Administrator 5.0 Service Pack 1.
To install this hotfix, perform the following steps on each GPA Console computer and GPA Server computer:
- Close all the GPA user interfaces in the GPA Console computer.
- Run the GPA50000_Hotfix70641.exe file.
Hotfix 70641 modifies the faGPRInterface.dll file. By default, GPA installs this file in the Program Files\NetIQ\Group Policy Administrator\Bin folder.
