    SCCM application are working. Software Updates. Group Policy NOT working.
    The SCCM client is showing as healthy and works for the most part. Software Updates are the only component that does not work.
    Group policy update shows the following error.

    The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows could not apply the registry-based policy settings for the Group Policy object LocalGPO. Group Policy settings will not be resolved until this event is resolved. View the event details for more information on the file name and path that caused the failure.

    Rename the file ‘C:\\Windows\\system32\\GroupPolicy\\Machine\\Registry.pol’. I am assuming the C: is your system drive.
    After renaming the above policy file. Run the following command as an administrator.

    gpupdate /force

    That worked. The SCCM client settings for the WSUS server were not set because the Registry.pol file was corrupted and 0 bytes.

DCOM hardening issue.

This application fails to authenticate with WMI on the SCCM server because Microsoft has not yet hardened DCOM on their Windows Preinstallation Environment. We are working on a different approach, but it will only be released during the first quarter of 2024. But until that time, the only workaround will be to uninstall the update corresponding to KB5004442.
