Error on Windows 2003 Server - Event ID 1007 - Source: Userenv

This error just started occuring a couple of days ago on a server that is primarily a web & email server. This machine is not (nor EVER WAS) a member or controller of any domain. It is only on a workgroup and is a single computer on a sonicwall DMZ.

Here are the error details:
Windows cannot determine the associated site for this computer. (The remote procedure call failed and did not execute. ). Group Policy processing aborted.

The error occurs in the application log and repeats every 90 minutes or so... Running GPupdate on a command prompt causes the error to be logged as well.

I haven't associated any performance symptoms with the error (at least not yet).

Any ideas?

Did anything change with your ISP?  Namely DNS servers?  If they changed the Primary or Secondary DNS IP, it could cause this error.

If nothing has changed on your Network/Server, then I'd look at contacting your ISP.

I have already reviewed that previous post but could not see how it resolves my situation. My server was never a member of any domain. In addition, there is no evidence of any of thes CLSID folders in the roots of the drives.

Also there have been no DNS changes. This server runs DNS and uses itself for DNS resolution. The RPC service is started and running. When I try to start the NETLOGON service I get the following error in the system event log (ID: 3095): "This computer is configured as a member of a workgroup, not as a member of a domain. The Netlogon service does not need to run in this configuration."

Anyone have any idea how I can troubleshoot this "Group Policy" or turn it off?

Any other suggestions?

Still no resolution found ... we're just living with the error message (no other symtpoms) ... anyone have any other ideas before I request to close this question?
