Microsoft confirms GPO copy problems and provides workarounds

September 23, 2022 –
Microsoft has confirmed group policy copy issues brought in with recent updates. At least Microsoft offers a workaround until the bug is gone.

With the release of the cumulative updates in mid-September, Microsoft has once again managed to break existing functions. This time it affected file operations that are initialized via group policies.
Microsoft has now confirmed the incorrect behavior and reports that after installing the update package with the ID KB5017328, copy operations triggered via group policies could fail or at most only create a shortcut or a zero-byte file.

In order to avoid the problem in the meantime, Microsoft recommends three approaches, all of which should work as a workaround. For example, you can disable the user policy option (run in logged-on user’s security context), but this shouldn’t do anything when using wildcards. Furthermore, changing the action from replace to update should also work, and finally, when using wildcards in the target specification, the preceding backslash () can be deleted, which should also make the copying process successful.

All common versions of Windows 10 and Windows 11 as well as all server versions since 2008 SP2 are affected by the bug. As usual, Microsoft promises to work on a solution. (rd)
