Darren,

 

Did you find a way to clean up the history related to CSEs? Cos I've come upon 
a similar "problem".

 

I recently used CSEs with one of the standard gpmc scripts:

FindGPOsByPolicyExtension.wsf /PrintCSEList

While running FindGPOsByPolicyExtension.wsf against the Disk Quota CSE, it 
still comes up with the name of a GPO that doesn't have anything configured in 
the Disk Quota policy anymore...

 

Guess I'll have to clean up its history somewhere, but I don't know where.

 

Thanks for your help,

 

Hendrikus

Thanks Darren. I've been at this organization for 2yrs now and those 2 errors 
have always been there, and I know I didn't put any SI policy in place. J  I 
did some research on how to get rid of those errors and the get rid of the 
Event 1085 error but didn't come up with anything. I'm not familiar too much 
with what Client-Side Extensions are. I read about them some time ago, but 
didn't understand them too much. I assume that's what you meant in your last 
couple statements about old CSEs?

 

Thanks again.

What those two messages tell me is that, first, that a script policy failed to 
run because the script in question could not be found and, that the software 
installation policy failed to run because it needs a reboot or re-logon to 
actually do something. The fact that you no longer have SI policy could just 
mean that on the client in question, the registry metadata related to GP that 
is used by RSOP has not gotten cleaned up since you removed that policy. I 
actually found a bug in GP results when I was building my GPExpert Health 
Reporter where, if a CSE no longer applies to a computer or user, the history 
related to that CSE does not get cleaned up in all cases. That can result in 
old CSE errors showing up even though the CSE no longer is being run. I suspect 
that is what is happening in this case.

Hi All,

I've always gotten the following errors when I've run the GPResults wizard and 
not sure why. I've tried searching possible causes/resolutions and had no 
success. I also have errors in Event Viewer (Event ID 1085) and have had those 
for what seems like forever. I'm not experiencing any GP issues, as far as I 
can tell....all seems to be working fine. It's more of a "clean-up" kinda thing 
really. Although, one of my GPOs doesn't seem to work right (Offline File 
Sharing...still testing that out, though).

 

Error1:

Scripts failed due to the error listed below.

The system cannot find the file specified. 

Additional information may have been logged. Review the Policy Events tab in 
the console or the application event log for events between 4/3/2008 9:35:20 AM 
and 4/3/2008 9:35:20 AM

 

Error2:

Software Installation did not complete policy processing because a system 
restart is required for the settings to be applied. Group Policy will attempt 
to apply the settings the next time the computer is restarted.

Additional information may have been logged. Review the Policy Events tab in 
the console or the application event log for events between 4/3/2008 9:50:34 AM 
and 4/3/2008 9:50:34 AM.

 

Funny thing is we have no software installation package or anything like that. 
We just have software installation security settings configured (i.e. User -> 
Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Software Restriction Policies & 
Security Levels).

 

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
