As Darren mentioned, do you have anything in your Applications Event

I don't see an error in RSOP, just the exclamation point that shows up
and the information still showing the GPO.


I have run dcdiag on all my DC's and replication is running OK, although
is was not when I first created the GPO. 


Is it safe to manually remove these folders from Sysvol? And if so,
which folder should I remove?

Couple of things. First off, did you notice what the error message was
in RSOP? Software installation policies sometimes require a couple of
reboots before they get picked up. You should also see errors in the
application event log on the client that might tell why the install


In terms of RSOP still showing the GPO even though its gone, I suspect
its stuck in the client's history in the registry. Frankly, it should
clear out eventually so I wouldn't worry too much about it.


Though I'm curious about your last statement. You say you deleted the
GPO but it still has a part of it in SYSVOL? That's not good and
indicates to me that you have some replication issues with FRS that you
should probably solve before re-creating that GPO.

Hi folks, I created a group policy to roll out the Office Compatibility
Pack for 2007 (O12Conv.MSI). 


I created a new OU to test, put my machine name in it, and created an
assigned software install for this MSI. 


The policy applied at startup but the software never installed. When I
run rsop.msc it shows what I think is a pending software assignment
(please see rsop.jpg). If I look at the advanced deployment options I
get what is in the "script info.jpg".


I have deleted the GPO and rebooted my machine several times and run
gpupdate /force, but I still get the same info in rsop.msc, also I had
some replication issues but those have been resolved. 


Is there an issue with the policy stuck on my machine and could you give
me some suggestions how to remove it (so I can re-create the GPO and
test installing the 012Conv.MSI)? Should I delete the policy folder
"{8062B822-1E92-48D7-B535-610092827A9A}" off of Sysvol?


Thanks so much for your help!
