When attempting to install the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM), the installation fails when running the GPOPolicyReview.
MSI (s) (08:C8) [19:41:46:749]: Invoking remote custom action.

Return value 3.
The installation runs "gpresult /scope COMPUTER /f /X gpresult.xml" during the installation to determine the currently assigned group policies. If this command takes longer than 5 minutes to run, the installation will fail.
As a workaround, use a local account where gpresult takes less time or troubleshoot current domain policies to reduce complexity in applying GPOs.
