On my windows 2003 Ent. edition server event viewer application log I'm getting an Information event id: 1704, source SceCli. Description: Secrurity Policy in the Group policy objects has been applied successfully.  This is immediately followed by an error event id: 1091, source Userenv.  Description: The Group Policy client-side extension failed to log RSOP (Resultant Set of Policy) data.  Please look for any errors reported earlier by that extension.  Any help would be appreciated.  

Thanks, Ed

  Thanks for the quick reply.  My experience level is low in this dept...  I have run accross this info and when I try to run the command (in the correct dir): mofcomp exwmi.mof, I get  "File ' exwmi.mof ' not found!.  I wasn't sure if I should continue running the additional commands listed?  I did a search on server for this file, it doesn't exist.

Thanks, Ed


I did a little more research on this, thanks bwalker for the link.  I figured out that the exwmi.mof file is used by exchange server, which I am not running...  So if figured it couldn't hurt to run through these instructions as listed..  

1. At the cmd line enter (run the following commands from the windows\system32\wbem folder and hit enter after each line):
- mofcomp exwmi.mof.
- mofcomp -n:root\cimv2\applications\exchange wbemcons.mof.
- mofcomp -n:root\cimv2\applications\exchange smtpcons.mof.
- mofcomp exmgmt.mof.
- mofcomp rsop.mof.
- mofcomp rsop.mfl.
- cd back down one level to windows\system32 and run the following:
- regsvr32 /n /i userenv.dll.
- reboot the system.
- After the reboot, you should no longer see the event. However if you still see event 1091 after reboot, re-register the security client dll by running the following commands:
- regsvr32 /u scecli.dll.
- regsvr32 scecli.dll.
2. Perform a gpupdate and see if event 1090 from source Userenv is gone.
3. If the event is still present, read M281888 for further troubleshooting information.
4. Run the following switches:
winmgmt /regserver winmgmt /resyncperf winmgmt –e.
5. Reboot and perform a gpupdate. See if the event is gone".

I did have to re register the security client dll as listed.   This did clear up my problem.  Thanks for the help!
