After using System Center 2012 Configuration Manager or System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager to deploy a Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 image, when a user starts the system that has the image (physical or virtual) and tries to log on for the first time they receive the following error message:
The Group Policy Client service failed the sign-in.
The universal unique identifier (UUID) type is not supported.
This error message appears at first user logon after initial deployment of the image, however in some scenarios later user logons also result in the error.
After the message is displayed and the user clicks OK, the logon screen is displayed again.
For all the details including the cause and the steps to resolve the issue, please see the following:
