The Group Policy client-side extension %1 failed to log RSOP (Resultant Set of Policy) data. Please look for any errors reported earlier by that extension.

Details
Product: Windows Operating System
Event ID: 1091
Source: Userenv
Version: 5.2
Symbolic Name: EVENT_EXT_RSOP_FAILED
Message: The Group Policy client-side extension %1 failed to log RSOP (Resultant Set of Policy) data. Please look for any errors reported earlier by that extension.
   
Explanation

This error indicates that Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) is not functioning correctly. As a result, the client-side extension can not process Resultant Set of Policy (RSoP) information. Even though Group Policy might have been successfully applied, the RSoP diagnostic information is not available.

   
User Action

To troubleshoot this problem, try one or all of the following:

  • Review the Event Viewer for events logged by WMI and, if appropriate, the Group Policy client-side extension (CSE) that cannot log the RSoP data.
  • Verify that the WMI service (winmgmt) is running.
  • Click Start, click Run, type wbemtest.exe, and then click OK. Verify that you can access the root\rsop namespace on the affected computer.
  • At the command prompt, type gpupdate, and then look in Event Viewer to see whether the event that caused the error or another WMI-related event is logged again. If the problem still exists, stop and then re-start the Winmgmt service.
  • Use verbose logging to debug this error. The log file explains the specific error.
