Windows Server 2008 Standard R2 GroupPolicy error

I am receiving an error in System log Event ID with the description "Windows failed to apply the Group Policy Local Users and Groups settings. Group Policy Local Users and Groups settings might have its own log file. Please click on the "More information" link."

I have tried using a Custom view under event viewer with the activity ID and I found one instance of the error. Looking at the custom view the Event ID is 7016 with an 8006 immediately following.

There's an event log under Applications and Services Logs -> Microsoft -> Windows -> GroupPolicy called "Operational", right-click and enable it :-) –  Mathias R. Jessen Sep 23 '13 at 21:27
