I have a Windows 2008 R2 server managing XP SP3 and Windows 7 SP1 clients.

There are no issues with the Windows 7 clients.

However, on the Windows XP clients, I get errors for power options, scheduled tasks, and shortcuts policies in the "Computer configuration" section of group policy. The Client Side Extensions for XP have long since been installed.

Below I have included what appears in the event viewer, and what appears in the computer.log trace file on the client. However--I don't know what to do next, as I can't seem to find any information on the error code.

Here's what appears in the event viewer:

event ID: 8194
source: group policy power options
The client-side extension could not apply computer policy settings for 'default - power settings {A5C7F7E2-EFEF-4F97-B3B1-8AD8B52CC9E9}' because it failed with error code '0x80070547 Configuration information could not be read from the domain controller, either because the machine is unavailable, or access has been denied.' See trace file for more details.

event ID: 8194
source: group policy shortcuts
The client-side extension could not apply computer policy settings for 'default - desktop {3F5EF3E3-5073-4305-B86E-8F2ACED7206C}' because it failed with error code '0x80070547 Configuration information could not be read from the domain controller, either because the machine is unavailable, or access has been denied.' See trace file for more details.

event ID: 8194
source: group policy registry
The client-side extension could not apply computer policy settings for 'default - GP settings {E49DA0F1-C166-4516-9045-94858969AAA5}' because it failed with error code '0x80070547 Configuration information could not be read from the domain controller, either because the machine is unavailable, or access has been denied.' See trace file for more details.

event ID: 8194
source: group policy scheduled tasks
The client-side extension could not apply computer policy settings for 'default - scheduled tasks (XP) {E9E1C766-5C4A-41F7-B32C-9FFA227E7641}' because it failed with error code '0x80070547 Configuration information could not be read from the domain controller, either because the machine is unavailable, or access has been denied.' See trace file for more details.

I enabled tracing, and here's the section for scheduled tasks:

Your computer is unable to access the Power Options group policy preference configuration file (PowerOptions.xml) on the DC. The file path that is failing in the tracing log is \\domain.local\SysVol\domain.local\Policies\{A5C7F7E2-EFEF-4F97-B3B1-8AD8B52CC9E9}\Machine\Preferences\PowerOptions\PowerOptions.xml. You may have a permissions or replication issue. To rule out a replication issue, ensure that file exists in that location on each DC. You should also take a look at the NTFS permissions on PowerOptions.xml. Authenticated Users should have Read & execute on that file. Specifically, the computer account needs to be able to access read the file. To test, try this as a user who is a member of the local Administrators group:

  1. Run psexec -s -i -d cmd
  2. In the new command window, run the following: type \\domain.local\SysVol\domain.local\Policies\{A5C7F7E2-EFEF-4F97-B3B1-8AD8B52CC9E9}\Machine\Preferences\PowerOptions\PowerOptions.xml
  3. If the XML file's permissions are correct, you should see the contents of the file.

I ended up renaming the scheduled tasks and adding a permit incoming file sharing rule from the server's IP.

computer configuration/policies/windows settings/windows firewall with advanced security/inbound rules

That seems to have done the trick.

So for clarification, did this truly only effect certain OS's? Seems like your fix would have applied to all. And what did you rename? The GPO? The XML file? –  charleswj81 Apr 27 '13 at 0:35
    
There's two different sections in GP for firewall rules. The ones under computer configuration\administrative templates\network\network connections\windows firewall\domain profile were already in place, which seemed to be recognized by Win7, but not XP. As for renaming, I renamed the scheduled tasks. –  Force Flow Apr 29 '13 at 13:23
