When I try to run a Task Sequence I’m seeing the following error:

Failed to Run Task Sequence

An error occurred while retrieving policy for this computer (0x80072EE7). 
For more information, please contact your system administrator or helpdesk operator.


Make sure the machine has an IP address/ is connected to the network (Press F8 to start a Command Prompt and run ipconfig). In this case the network cable wasn’t fully inserted into the machine and as a result it didn’t have an IP address.
