    Group Policy Client service failed the sign-in


    From a cold boot: it took 4-5 minutes. Disk was active, but not taking a dump (observed disk activity light). Got message "The Group Policy Client service failed the sign-in., The universal unique identifier (UUID) type is not supported." I just sat there with that message being displayed, and no apparent disk activity.

    I held the power button down, it powered down, and I restarted with no problem.

    Should I be concerned?

    If it repeats, maybe. Some older pages that may help explain:

    Thanks, Berton: I'll close this issue out for now. Read the stuff, checked the Group Policy Client Properties, they seem OK.
