Powershell Import-GPO : The Data Is Invalid Fixed

Posted on April 20, 2010. Filed under: Powershell Tangents |

Thank you for visiting my blog. I’ve moved this article to my new book’s website at: http://masteringposh.com/powershell-import-gpo-the-data-is-invalid-fixed


This article is to aid those who are receiving the “Data is Invalid” error message in Powershell on Windows Server 2008 R2. This issue occurs while trying to import policies from one domain into their a different domain using a migration table. This issue has to do with the migration table editor referring to the “Pre-Windows 2000 Username” to migrate users instead of their Standard Username.

Happy Coding!

I came across the same error when using the Copy-GPO command. It turns out that my .migtable file did not have enough entries. My source GPO has lots of folder redirections and my .migtable file did not have an entry for the Downloads redirection. Once I added that entry everthing worked fine.

Thanks for the comment!
