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.

Try the steps in this blog:

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.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.
