I am attempting to back up the default domain controller policy and got
this error.

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Group Policy Management
Event Category: None
Event ID: 2004

Backup of GPO failed. Error [Invalid pointer].
Details -
     Source GPO:
          DisplayName: Default Domain Controllers Policy
          ID: {6AC1786C-016F-11D2-945F-00C04fB984F9}
          Domain: ourdomain.domain
         Directory: C:\GPOBackup
         Instance : {0DFA9DE2-7CE5-4B23-B290-EA02396EAA06}
         Comment  : 

Any ideas what caused this and what I can do to resolve this?  I tried
to run the BackupGPO.wsf in the GPMC\Scripts folder and received the
same message.  I read out on a page that another person was having the
same problem and they claimed to have resolved this after finding an
account listed in the Log on as a service right that had the same name
as a built in account (SA).  ???
 Any help that can be offered is greatly appreciated.
