I just took a look at our Applications log on our windows 2003 server, which is NOT a DC, just a regular file server which is part of a single domain in our forrest. Here is the error that is constantly logged:

Security policies were propagated with warning. 0x4b8 : An extended error has occurred.

Advanced help for this problem is available on http://support.microsoft.com. Query for "troubleshooting 1202 events".

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

I went to the registry per MS directions, turned on debugging and got the winlogon.log file and that says:

Make a local copy of \\ycc969midland.net\sysvol\ycc969midland.net\Policies\{31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9}\Machine\Microsoft\Windows NT\SecEdit\GptTmpl.inf.
GPLinkDomain GPO_INFO_FLAG_BACKGROUND )

Process GP template gpt00000.dom.

this is the last GPO.

A conflict in Group Policy can cause these events to occur. These error messages can occur if the "Rename Administrator Account" security policy is enabled and then set to an account name that is already in use.

Also, as per Q285903 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/285903/en-us), to resolve this behavior, remove all references to the Power Users group in the Local Security settings.

Check the link also which will guide on this issue.
