Description Alex MacCuish 2018-08-02 01:44:06 UTC
For some reason, my Policies folder as GPOs with a mix of GPT.INI and gpt.ini (different cases). samba_gpoupdate only looks for GPT.INI (uppercase), and therefore fails with file not found on lower case varients. My temp workaround was simply to rename all gpt.inis to uppercase.

Error is:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/samba/sbin/samba_gpoupdate", line 177, in <module>
    apply_gp(lp, creds, test_ldb, logger, store, gp_extensions)
  File "/usr/local/samba/sbin/samba_gpoupdate", line 77, in apply_gp
    version = int(gpo.gpo_get_sysvol_gpt_version(local_path)[1])
samba.NTSTATUSError: (3221225487, '{File Not Found} The file %hs does not exist.')
