I have a windows XP machine that is not getting any policies from my DC's.  It can ping it fine.  When I run RSOP.msc or from policy manager I'm getting and error:
Ensure that the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) service is enabled on the Target Computer...  I check the service it's running.  I took the machine out of the domain and put it back in and still that same error..  I can't seem to figure out what's going on.

Your WMI repository may have been corrupted somehow.  Rebuilding is a last resort, but I have seen that work well too.

Give this a try on one of those machines and let us know what the results were.
