The fact that you moved to a different machine and the problem re-occurred
eventually makes me think that the problem is not at the workstation but
rather on the focused DC. However, I did run into this problem once before
but error message was slight different. My problem was that the drivers for
the GPMC (SP1) where being corrupted by an RDP session. I never found an
explanation for this but I rebuilt the PC and the problem never showed up

Also, you mentioned that the machine where you are storing your ADM's was
remoted into. Was this a WinXP or server? If it was XP, there is only one
logon of RDP allowed. So, when you logged onto the console that should
gracefully log off the other user. if this is the case, is is possible that
the other user was/is not being logged off correctly (ie. not releasing
registry hive)?

If this is a server, are you running Terminal Services or just using RDP for
management? Could you post a log entry or two? preferably from System and
Application? Thanks.

 Hello Everyone,

I have been having a problem with the PCs that I install the GPMCsp1
onto.  We keep one PC for the console so that all policy settings come
from the same place.  At first I thought that the error I was getting was
due to the fact that I was using a Dell GX270 PC with a capacitor problem
on the motherboard.  The board was replaced and I went for a week or so
before I got the error again.  "Error connecting to existing session for
UserID (Id0) a device attached to the system is not functioning."

I then installed the GPMCsp1 and transferred all my ADMs to an HP D530.
That was about a week and a half ago.  I just got the error message again.  This
error usually occurs when someone is remoted into the PC; it freezes up.
The only way to get the PC workable is to hard boot it.  A few weeks ago
this caused corruption because a GPO was open for editing at the time.  I
looked at the MS site to see if there was a new version of GPMC and found
none, our servers have recently been updated to Windows2003sp2.  Does
anyone have any ideas as to why this is happening? Is there a GPMC sp2 and
I'm just not seeing it?

Thanks for any help you can offer.
