An existing Active Directory Group Policy Object (GPO) named "SCE Test GPO" may be deleted during the configuration of System Center Essentials 2010.
The System Center Essentials 2010 policy configuration process attempts to create and then delete a "SCE Test GPO" in Active Directory Domain Services to determine if the user context of the Essentials console can create domain policy. If an Active Directory group policy object with this name already exists and is being used then it may be deleted during this process.
Before configuring System Center Essentials 2010, ensure that the name "SCE Test GPO" is not being used by any Active Directory group policy objects. If System Center Essentials policy configuration has already deleted this GPO, restore the GPO from backup and then rename it to prevent this problem in the future.
