Wednesday went by quickly…

  • Created group CS-File Services, populated it, and emailed kmartin1
  • joined computer to domain for vlcarter
  • vlcarter – resolved printer issue (14081)
  • Transcribed default inetOrgPerson and user object permissions in AD schema
  • removed the three managed OUs from campustest (took a long time)
  • tested RIS server that it works and has an image for D600 from 2003

I spent a bunch of time trying to find some programmatic way of dumping the default permissions for an objectClass in AD, without much luck. I ended up transcribing by hand from DSA, which means there are some attributes which aren’t displayed and I didn’t get those.

I wil recreate the managed OUs in the test domain and populate with some test objects to verify the same behavior we are seeing in production. I’ll then apply the changes suggested by the KB article indicated by MS Essential Support.

Grid1 This will likely come in handy for someone- incompetech,com has PDFs you can print out in just about all the graph paper styles one may need- Metric, Multi-Width, Asymmetric, Dots, Iso-Dots, Hexagonal, Hex Dot, and Celtic Knot. Neato. Link.

WMI/RSoP errors on mtrootdc

Getting a constellation of errors on MTROOTDC,

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Userenv
Event ID: 1090
Windows couldn’t log the RSoP (Resultant Set of Policies) session status. An attempt to connect to WMI failed. No more RSoP logging will be done for this application of policy.

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Userenv
Event ID: 1091

The Group Policy client-side extension Security failed to log RSOP (Resultant Set of Policy) data. Please look for any errors reported earlier by that extension.

and most recently

Event Type: Error
Event Source: WinMgmt
Event ID: 4
Failed to load MOF C:WINDOWSSYSTEM32WBEMSYSTEM.MOF while recovering repository file.

I found a site listing a procedure for rebuilding corrupted WMI repository.

I’ve given it a try, we’ll see what it accomplishes.
