    "This event normally indicates a successful change to the Windows 2000 AD security policies. However, this also is recorded when the Group Policies are applied (event id 1704 would indicate a successful application of Group Policies). As per a newsgroup posting of a Microsoft intrusion detection engineer, this is "normal behavior" for Windows 2000."
    I assume the same would apply to 2003.
