Group Policy Infrastructure failed error in Resultant Set of Policy

I have got this Group Policy Infrastructure failed error in Windows 7 machine while working with GPO to configure Audit Policy settings. I was in need of configure Audit logon events policy as Success,Failure to audit logon,logoff and logon failure of every users with their workstation by the Event IDs 4624,4634. So that I have decided to apply Audit logon events policy to workstations through Default Domain Policy.

After edit the Audit logon events policy in Default Domain Policy as Success,Failure, I run the command GPUpdate /force in domain controller. then I moved to one of the workstation Windows 7 computer which is in the Domain Network, to check whether the Audit logon events policy is applied or not through Default Domain Policy. To check final result I run the command rsop.msc to view Resultant Set of Policy. I see the following output with Group Policy Infrastructure failed error.

After I haved researched through google, I got many suggestions to edit hosts file.

The HOSTS file located in C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc contained entries for my domain controllers. I simply removed entries which relevant to domain controller from the HOSTS file and now my Windows 7 pc get rid off Resultant Set of Policy issue.
