Group Policy Management Console error "Invalid Pointer"

When using the Group Policy management console you may see the error Invalid Pointer or The data is invalid as you expand the domain.

This can be caused if there is an invalid gPLink value on one of the organizational units. As you can see here the distinguished name has been modified placing a "f" character before the LDAP:// prefix.

To resolve the error you need to locate the faulty gPLink and correct the distinguished name value.

You can either look at the organizational units or scan the domain with our Active Directory audit tool can help locate the faulty link.
