did u check your event log messages. if u are getting any.
did move the domain controller account from the Domain Controllers organizational unit to another organizational unit, and you do not link the Default Domain Controllers policy to the new organizational unit.

yes in one of the DC we get the error message every 5mins...

The Group Policy client-side extension Security was passed flags (17) and returned a failure status code of (1208).

But i don't think that's the problem do you??
otherwise the rest of the question is no...

thanks...
