JSI Tip 2378. Group Policies may not be applied and Events 1001 and 1000 are logged?


If your DFS Client is disabled, Group Policies may not be applied and your Event log contains messages similar to:

        Event Type: Error
        Event Source: Userenv
        Event Category: None
        Event ID: 1000

        Event Type: Error

        Event Category: None
        Event ID: 1000
        Date: 4/7/2000
        Time: 4:30:46 AM
        User: NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM
        Computer: MYCOMPUTER
        Description: The Group Policy client-side extension Security was passed flags (17) and returned a failure
        status code of (3).
If the DFS Client is disabled, you can NOT access the \\<Active Directory Domain Name>\Sysvol share, which would cause this problem.

To check / enable the DFS Client, use Regedt32 to navigate to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Mup

Double-click the DisableDFS value name, a REG_DWORD data type.

A data value of 0, the default, enables the DFS Client. A data value of 1 disables the DFS Client.

NOTE: If the DisableDFS value name is missing, the DFS Client is enabled.
