Group Policy are not applying properly - event id 1054


You have a group policy setting that you want to deploy during computer startup. However it seems that the policy is not applying properly. Running gpresult command from the client machine shows no error. Running gpresult wizard from GPMC for the problematic machine shows GPO Core processing error preventing some policies from applying successfully. Running gpupdate /force will correct the situation and the settings will be applied successfully. 
At event viewer of the problematic computer, you found event id 1054, “Windows cannot obtain the domain controller name for the computer network. (The specified domain either does not exist or exist or could not be contacted). Group Policy processing aborted.”


Please follow Microsoft's Knowledge Base Article KB840669

As Per KB 840669, create a new DWord value on registry on:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
Name: GpNetworkStartTimeoutPolicyValue
Value: 120

Restart the client computer. Settings can be applied successfully.
