SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • On a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows 7, you use Group Policy Management Editor to manage a Group Policy object (GPO).
  • Many changes are made to the "User Rights Assignment" settings in the GPO and these settings have a per-service SID defined.
In this scenario, when the Group Policy is applied, you may experience the following problems:
  • A SceCli 1202 event is added into the Application event log:

    The following is an example of a SceCli 1202 event log entry:

    Log Name: Application
    Source: SceCli
    Date: <date>
    Event ID: 1202
    Task Category: None
    Level: Information
    Keywords: Classic
    User: N/A
    Computer: <computer name>
    Description: Security policies are propagated with warning. 0x534 : No mapping between account names and security IDs was done.

  • Some applications or services may not start. These applications or services use the per-service SID to configure security settings.

    For example:
    1. You install Active Directory Domain Services on a Windows Server 2008 R2-based member server.
    2. You make a change to the "User Rights Assignment" setting in a GPO from a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows 7.
    3. This GPO is applied to the domain controller that is running Windows Server 2008 R2.
    In this situation, you encounter the issue. Some services, such as the "Diagnostic System Host" service cannot start because of the issue.

CAUSE

When the Group Policy Management Editor modifies settings under User Rights Assignment, it translates per-service SIDs to the service names. For example, the "WdiSystemHost" service name.

The Group Policy Management Editor does not add the prefix "NT Service" to the service name to perform the lookup in the internal “NT Service” domain. When the Group Policy Management Editor writes the previously parsed name back into the GptTmpl.inf file, it tries to resolve only the "WdiSystemHost" name against the default Active Directory domain. However, this attempt fails. Additionally, the "WdiSystemHost" string is written to GptTmpl.inf file instead of the SID. This behavior replaces the per-service SID with the service name.

When the next policy refresh occurs, the refresh tries to resolve the service name to a SID as if it were a user or group account. However, this fails together with the error 0x534 "No mapping between account names and security IDs was done."

RESOLUTION

Note The hotfix does not automatically resolve this problem. After you apply this hotfix, you must manually append "NT SERVICE\" directly in the GptTmpl.inf file. For example, you must replace "WdiSystemHost" with "NT SERVICE\WdiSystemHost" by using the Local Group Policy Editor.

MORE INFORMATION

After the issue occurs, the following error is added to the Winlogon.log file:

Error 1332: No mapping between account names and security IDs was done. Cannot find <service name>.


Note The Winlogon.log file is located in the following folder:

%windir%\security\logs


If you open the GptTmpl.inf file in the following related Group Policy folder, you find some SQL service names:

%SYSTEMROOT%\SYSVOL\<domainname.com>\Policies\<Unique ID>\Machine\Microsoft\Windows NT\SecEdit


The following is an example of the WDI service names that are found in the GptTmpl.inf file:

[Privilege Rights]
SeAssignPrimaryTokenPrivilege = WdiServiceHost,*S-1-5-20,*S-1-5-19
SeChangeNotifyPrivilege = WdiServiceHost,*S-1-5-32-554,*S-1-5-11,*S-1-5-32-544,*S-1-5-20,*S-1-5-19,*S-1-1- 0


Note The hotfix does not automatically resolve this problem. After you apply this hotfix, you must manually append "NT SERVICE\" directly in the GptTmpl.inf file. For example, you must replace "WdiSystemHost" with "NT SERVICE\WdiSystemHost" by using the Local Group Policy Editor.
