Symptoms

Assume that you create a Wireless Group Policy Object (GPO) through Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) that runs on a site that does not contain a primary domain controller (PDC) in Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows 7, or Windows Server 2008 R2. When you try to edit the GPO, the GP link is displayed as "Name not available" and you cannot edit the GPO settings.

Cause

This issue occurs because the GPO is created through a non-PDC site that is created on an onsite DC instead of a PDC site and has some attributes that differ from the PDC GPO. It also lacks some information necessary for identification. Due to AD synchronization, the PDC GPO is overwritten by the GPO created when you edit the GPO settings.

Resolution

To resolve this issue in Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2, install update 2919355.
To resolve this issue in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, install the hotfix that is described in this article.
