Windows 2000 Terminal Server not downloading Group Policies

Hi All,

This terminal server used to be a domain controller in a domain that no longer exists. I demoted it, then installed licensing on the production domain controller, and activated this terminal server in application mode. Everything works fine with it, but since I joined it to this domain it won't download group policy. I know that if I format it and re install windows it will download them fine, but that would be time consuming.

I get the following error in event viewer:

Windows cannot unload your registry file.  If you have a roaming profile, your settings are not replicated. Contact your administrator.  

DETAIL - Access is denied. , Build number ((2195)).

I also get warnings from nav corporate 7.6:

Could not scan 6058 files inside C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\WINDOWS\TEMP\ni\bin\c1_win32.zip due to extraction errors encountered by the Decomposer Engines.

(many of them are could not open or could not scan files)

Aside from that everything on the terminal server is working fine, but I strive for consistency. Thanks
Justin

Are you using roaming profiles? If so are they on the same machine?

I run a Terminal Server and come across those types of errors occationaly but usually the fix is to destroy the local copy of the users profile, reset the folder permissions located on the server share and then have the user log on again so that i recopies the profile.

I'm not sure how you set group policy. So if you would like to explain please feel free.

Besides backup, any IT division should have a disaster recovery plan. You will find a few tips below relating to the development of such a plan and to what issues one should pay special attention in the course of backup planning.

Also as for the antivirus issue. I use 8.6 corporate and i found some article on Symantec's website that may shed light.

Error: "Could not scan <#> files inside <path><filename> due to extraction errors encountered by the Decomposer Engines" when scanning compressed files

Situation:
When scanning compressed files, you see an entry in the event log similar to "Could not scan 1 files inside C:\winzip81.exe due to extraction errors encountered by the Decomposer Engines."

Solution:
This event is typically encountered when one of the following situations occur:


You are scanning a compressed file that contains a password-protected file. The Decomposer Engine cannot provide the password required to gain access to the file, so it will be omitted during a scan.
You are scanning files that have been locked for access by the operating system and access cannot be released to the scanner because the file is in use.

You are scanning files that are recursively compressed to a depth that is more than the scan engine is set to scan. By default, the scan engine is set to scan a maximum of three levels deep (for example, a zip file contained within a zip file contained within another zip file).
You are scanning files with LH7 compression, which is not a supported format. These compressed files commonly have an .LZH extension, and they are omitted by the scan.
You are scanning files that are in use by another user. This is most commonly seen when scanning user directories and shared folders and a user has the document in question opened for editing.
You are scanning files that have file system permissions set to deny access.
There is corruption in the virus definitions. Please see the following document to verify proper structure and functionality of the virus definitions: How to determine if Virus Definitions used by Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition 8.0 are corrupted.

I installed service pack 4, now the server is downloading group policies but I'm still getting the userenv error. its also taking a very long time to log off. I've changed the group policy setting that decides how many times the server will try unloading the profile to 5, so in theory it shoudl take 5 seconds but in practice its taking about a minute maybe two. The NAV error isn't a big concern.
