When the group policy refreshes, the following errors are logged on one of our machines . The machine is running Windows XP SP2.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Event Type:     Error
Event Source:     Userenv
Event Category:     None
Event ID:     1085
Date:          xxx
Time:          xxx
User:          NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM
Computer:    xxx
Description:
The Group Policy client-side extension Security failed to execute. Please look for any errors reported earlier by that extension.

---------

Event Type:     Warning
Event Source:     SceCli
Event Category:     None
Event ID:     1202
Date:          xxx
Time:         xxx
User:          N/A
Computer:     xxx
Description:
Security policies were propagated with warning. 0x4b8 : An extended error has occurred.

I tried the steps located at http://groups.google.com.au/group/microsoft.public.windows.group_policy/browse_thread/thread/1b24c528d3fea7de/972ecdf07d57434e?lnk=st but it didn't resolve the error.

The only MS kb artcile I found related to WIndows 2000 machines - the PC is definitely Windows XP operating in a Windows 2003 domain.

Dear mfteal,
> Event ID:     1085
Normally event id 1202 comes because of a security group which is trying to be added with in GPO settings like "Access this computer from network" or l"og on locally".
Some time by mistake their may be group which is existing in only servers, is given at client side also. I have faced similar issue and resolved this way.Try to remove all references to the Power Users group in the Local Security settings.

Good luck


You can find that

Cheers!
