  • GPO backup errors

    w2k3 standard, modifying some gpo's I made up a while back, that as far as I knew were and are working properly, however, if I try and back them up, I get the following error:


    GPO: {XXXX} Policy...Failed

    The specified module could not be found.



    the event viewer shows event id 2004's every time I try and back up a gpo...


    Backup of GPO failed. Error [The specified module could not be found.]


    what's going on and how do I fix it?

        Have you tried the suggestion you just linked to?

        From a newsgroup post: "This event can occur if you backup a GPO which contains custom registry security settings, and the Owner for this registry key they were trying to set security on, had been set to one of their own admins. You may edit the policy to change the owner to be “Administrators” group (the default) as following:
        1. Right click the policy in Group Policy Management and select Edit.
        2. In Group Policy Object Editor, right click the Default Domain Policy and
        select Properties.
        3. In Security tab, click Advanced.
        4. In Advanced Security Settings for page, confirm the Owner is “Administrators” in Owner tab.

        If the problem still persists, please enable verbose logging of the Group Policy Management Console by adding the following registry keys:
        Key: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Diagnostics
        Value: GPMgmtTraceLevel
        Value Type: REG_DWORD
        Value Data: 2
        Key: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Diagnostics
        Value: GPMgmtLogFileOnly
        Value Type: REG_DWORD
        Value Data: 1
        This creates a gpmgmt.log that is located in %temp%. The temp folder is in the profile of the currently logged on user".
        It might help if you post the log.

          guess you have to registered to see what you posted as it does not show up on the linked page, otherwise, I have no idea how you got that...

          that being said, yes, I have done the first part and validated the owner of the gpo's is the administrators group.

          on the second, I will do that now...

            Odd, since while I am registered I'm not actually logged in... ah well. Consider that your free evaluation

                am I missing something obvious or is this a stumper?

                I have not been able to find any information relating to these errors...

                  Re: GPO backup errors

                  so I installed gpmc on a different server and....it let me back up from there?

                  won't let me backup from the pdc, won't let me backup from my laptop, will let me backup from a bdc...???

                  is this by design or ??
