Group Policy Management MMC problem: ‘Wired Network Policy Management’

Posted by bartvdw on 0101/0606/2018

After testing membership of the ‘Protected Users’ security group (introduced in Windows Server 2012 R2), I was getting following error after expanding ‘Computer Configuration\Policies\Windows Settings\Security Settings’:

mmc error protected user gpo wired config

Keep this in mind when using this group! Unfortunately I’m unable to find documentation about this effect, or have proper logs pointing to this group…
