Event ID 1007 — Group Policy Preprocessing (Active Directory)

Updated: September 21, 2007

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

red

Group Policy processing requires Active Directory. The Group Policy service reads and updates information stored in Active Directory. The absence of Active Directory (or a domain controller) prevents Group Policy from applying to the computer or user.

Resolve

Determine site information

This event occurs when there is an absence of authenticated connectivity from the computer to the domain controller. The Group Policy service logs the error code. This information appears on the Details tab of the error message in Event Viewer. The error code (displayed as a decimal) and error description fields further identify the reason for the failure. Evaluate the error code with the list below:

  • Error code 1249
  • Error code 1723
  • Error code 1726

Error code 1249 (The specified site does not exist)

This error code might indicate DNS misconfiguration or site misconfiguration. Use Active Directory troubleshooting procedures to further diagnose the problem (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=92707).

Error code 1723 (The RPC server is too busy to complete this operation)

This error code might indicate that local security components are experiencing problems. Check the system event log for any errors from Winlogon or LSASS. Use Security troubleshooting procedures to further diagnose the problem (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=92709).

Error code 1726 (The remote procedure call failed)

This error code might indicate that local security components are experiencing problems. Check the system event log for any errors from Winlogon or LSASS. Use Security troubleshooting procedures to further diagnose the problem (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=92709).

Verify

Group Policy applies during computer startup and user logon. Afterward, Group Policy applies every 90 to 120 minutes. Events appearing in the event log may not reflect the most current state of Group Policy. Therefore, you should always refresh Group Policy to determine if Group Policy is working correctly.

To refresh Group Policy on a specific computer:

  1. Open the Start menu. Click All Programs and then click Accessories.
  2. Click Command Prompt.
  3. In the command prompt window, type gpupdate and then press ENTER.
  4. When the gpupdate command completes, open the Event Viewer.

Group Policy is working correctly if the last Group Policy event to appear in the System event log has one of the following event IDs:

  • 1500
  • 1501
  • 1502
  • 1503
