Symptoms

Consider the following scenario. In a Windows Server 2008 Active Directory domain environment, you install the File Server Resource Manager (FSRM) of the File Services role. Then, you create a file screen for any folder on the system drive, such as a new folder named "%SystemDrive%\temp". In this scenario, when you try to create a domain Group Policy Object (GPO), the operation fails. Additionally, you receive the following error message:

The data present in the reparse point buffer is invalid.

This issue also occurs when you try to edit an existing domain GPO. When you try to save the change that you made to the GPO, you receive the following error message:

The Group Policy snapin was unable to save your changes due to the following error:
The data present in the reparse point buffer is invalid.
