Consider the following scenario:

  • In an Active Directory domain, you have member computers that are running Windows Vista Service Pack 1 or Windows Server 2008.
  • You configure a file security policy to set file permissions on a folder.
  • The path that you specified for the folder contains some environment variables. For example, you specify the following path for the folder:


In this scenario, when you run the Resultant Set of Policy (RSoP) Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in on a member computer, the security file policy is missing. Additionally, the following event is logged on the domain controllers and on the member computers:

Log Name: System
Source: Microsoft-Windows-GroupPolicy
Date: Date_Time
Event ID: 1091
Task Category: None
Level: Warning
Computer: ComputerName
Windows could not record the Resultant Set of Policy (RSoP) information for the Group Policy extension Security. Group Policy settings successfully applied to the computer or user; however, management tools may not report accurately.
