Hi everyone,

Took a look for this, saw people with similar problems but not many resolutions.

We're pushing Group Policy to our XPSP2 workstations. However, some of them do not seem to be getting the policies. based on the log (provided below), I suspect that the problem is that it is not able to make the backup of the local policy, and so is aborting the procedure. The Policy packages are set to run as "System", and the System account has full control privleges on all folders in the c:\windows\System32\grouppolicy file.

I'm kinda stuck, and was wondering if anyone had any insights into this.

Log file follows:
