    I had recently replaced an old 2000 server with a new xp server and used a cross-cable to transfer the information needed from one to the other. Once in place, all other pc's were connected to the server and they were able to access the shared drive on the server. However, today the client pc's tell me they do not have privelage to access the folder on the server. Upon looking at the event viewer, I see the following:

    "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 = 1090

    Please help!

    Although this seemed to work for me, the first thing I did was turn off automatic updates. When I view the event viwer I also had automatic update errors in conjunction with the WMI error.
    To turn off automatic updates, right mouse click on My Computer and goto Properties. Next click on Automatic Updates tab and uncheck (Keep my computer up to date) then click on OK.
