_____________________________________________________

This error has appeared in Application log on Windows Server 2008.
This error was related with Client Side Extensions and Power Options.
The GPO with Group Policy Preferences with settings for Power Optiond previously was deleted and this GPO was not applied any more.

The solution was to rename XML files to this folder:

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Group Policy\History\{11111111-1111-1111-1111-111111111111}\S-1-5-21-1111111111-111111001-1111111110-1111\Preferences\PowerOptions\PowerOptions.xml

Note: C:\ProgramData is hidden in Windows Server 2008.

This alert has dissapeared after renaming XML files.

  1. Good tip - works like a charm. Run gpupdate after renaming the xml file corresponding to the event ID - you'll see the xml file is recreated and the error dissapears from the app log. Thanx.
