Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:

  • You have a computer that is running one of the following operating systems:

    • Windows Vista

    • Windows 7

    • Windows Server 2008

    • Windows Server 2008 R2

  • You use the LocalSystem account to run a service on the computer.

  • The service calls the GetGPOList function to query all Group Policy objects (GPO) that are applied on a computer.

  • The Authenticated Users group is removed from the access control list (ACL) in an applied GPO.

In this scenario, the GetGPOList function does not return all applied GPOs. The function returns only GPOs that have the Authenticated Usersgroup in the ACL of the GPO.
