  1. Thank you so much. Issue is resolved.

  2. Yes, I tried still cannot locate that folder.
    When i search in windows explorer. i got it.
    Its the production server – will there be any issues if i delete that

    • From the error you getting, It seems that Group Policy is corrupted. These steps will only repair. After renaming registry.pol when you will run gpupdate /force as administrator. It will refresh, update the policies.

  3. Access below path on issued machine
    rename or delete “Registry.pol”
    run gpupdate /force
    Then do SCCM Software Scan from ConfigMgr client it would works for you

  4. I ran the same command
    Get-GPRegistryValue -Name “POLICYName” -Key “HKLM\software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU”

    Do i need to change the “POLICYName” in this script ?

  5. Also i am not getting this “Get-GPRegistryValue” after pressing tab while executing powershell command

  6. Thank you so much. Do i need to run powershell command to remove ?

    I do not have any entry on that path
