Group Policy Error

by maxwell edison In reply to Group Policy Error

After you import the Basicdc.inf file in to the Default Domain Controllers Group Policy object (GPO), errors are generated each time the policy is applied.

To fix the problem:

1. Open a CMD prompt on the domain controller and type net share sysvol. Record the path that is returned.

2. Right-click My Computer and press Properties.

3. Select the Advanced tab.

4. Press Environment Variables.

5. In the System variables section, press New.

6. Type SYSVOL in the Variable Name box.

7. In the Variable Value box, type the path from step 1, without the last \sysvol.

8. Repeat this process to create the DSDIT and DSLOG variables, whose values can be obtained at:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NTDS

Database log files path
REG_SZ
C:\WINNT\NTDS
(Set DSLOG to C:\WINNT\NTDS)

DSA Working Directory
REG_SZ
C:\WINNT\NTDS
(Set DSDIT to C:\WINNT\NTDS)

At a CMD prompt, type secedit /refreshpolicy machine_policy /enforce

Another possible solution:

(REMOVE SPACES from the pasted URL.)

To resolve this behavior, remove all references to the Power Users group in the Local Security settings. Follow these steps:

Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.

Double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Local Security Policy.

Click Local Policies, and then click User Rights Assignment.

Double-click each item under User Rights Assignments to see whether the item contains the Power Users group. When you find a policy item that contains the Power Users group, click to clear the Power Users check box and then click OK.Restart the computer and review the Winlogon.log file and Event Viewer to make sure that the error messages no longer occur.
