SYMPTOMS

In an Active Directory domain environment, you define the following Group Policy setting on a Group Policy object (GPO):
Computer Configuration\Policies\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\User Rights Assignment\Create symbolic links
Then, on a Windows Server 2008-based computer or on a Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1)-based computer that has Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) installed, you use the Group Policy Management tool (GPMC.MSC) to generate a report of the GPO settings.

Note To generate a report of the GPO settings, click the GPO under the "Forest\Domains\Domain\Group Policy Objects" node, and then click the Settings tab in the right pane.

In this case, the "Create symbolic links" Group Policy setting does not appear in the report.

Also, on the computer where GPMC is running, you run the Group Policy Results wizard for the computers or users to which this Group Policy setting should be applied. Then, when you click the Settings tab, in the "Computer Configuration\Policies\Windows Settings\Security Settings" area, you receive the following error message:
An error has occurred while collecting data for Security Configuration Engine (SCE) Extension.
