The Group Policy Management Console does not generate a status report for a domain

Si applica a: Windows Server 2012 R2 DatacenterWindows Server 2012 R2 StandardWindows Server 2012 Datacenter


When you click Detect Now on the Status tab in the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC), you receive the following error message:

No Infrastructure Status information exists for this domain.


The XML that is used to generate the report may contain the ampersand (&) character. For example, the file path may contain "Documents & Settings".

The XML parsing engine expects "&amp" in stead of "&". As a result, it does not parse and generate the report.
