Hello everyone, and thank you all for the help. So far I've been unable to find 
the solution for this issue.

the server is a Win2k3 server that was put in a OU that had my  XP Workstation 
policy link to it, that policy was applied to the server.

Then it was noted that the server was in the wrong OU and it was moved and it 
now is receiving the Win2k3 Server Policy. 

I've logged onto the server with both the local admin account (LLLLL.AAAAA) and 
my domain account
(DDDDDD.AAAAAA) and it doesn't seam to matter.

There are settings and acl's that were applied from the XP Policy that are not 
correct for a Win2k3 server, and since the server policy doesn't replace them I 
believe this maybe causing strange problems.

When I run Process Monitor and try to run MBSA or Fport I'm not seening any 
access denied messages. The only thing to note is the following registry key.

When I run fport, proc mon logs the following
hklm\software\microsoft\windows nt\currentversion\imagefile execurion 
options\fport.exe name not found

When i run MBSA, proc mon logs the following
HKLM\SAM\SAM\Domains\account\Users\Names\LLLLLL.AAAAA (<--- the account of the 
renamed local admin that is applied from my XP Workstation policy) name not 
found

Could it be the user profile still being named LLLLLLL.AAAAAA that is causing 
the problem. 

I'm getting ready to turn on more logging on the server and see what that find.

Take Care --John

Are you, by any chance, accessing the server remotely?  Is there  policy in place that denies remote admin rights?  Try blocking inheritance on the OU to see if it a current policy that is giving you the issue.

Sounds like two different issues. You will get the "Ok to reboot" message
any time that certain client side extensions (e.g. Software Installation or
Folder Redirection) need to run a foreground processing mode in order to
apply.

On the 2nd issue, I'm not familiar with fport, so not sure I can answer that
but I it is very possible that if your server was getting security policy
from a different OU, that moving it to the new OU would not automatically
undo that policy. Normally, security policy "tattoos" a machine unless you
explicitly countermand it with a new policy.

Subject: [gptalk] gpupdate question

Hello Everyone, I have a question that I need help with.

I have a memberserver Win2k3 SP1, that was placed in the wrong OU and got my
Windows XP Group Policy.

Then it was moved to the correct OU, and recieves the member server policy.

Every time I run "gpupdate /force" I get the following. Certain Computer
policies are enabled that can only run during startup.
ok to Reboot? (Y/N)

Every time that I refresh group policy it wants to reboot, I see 1704 events
that security policy in the group policy object has been applied
successfully.

I've ran gpupdate as the local admin and as a domain admin.

If I try to run fport on the server as either a local admin or a domain
admin I get the following error "You must have administrator privileges to
run fport - exiting......

The local admin account is in the administrators group, and the domain admin
group is in the administrators group.

Could this be a registry tattoo from the xp policy that got applied? any
thoughts?

Thanks Everyone, take care and have fun --John
