We have a problem where some of our servers are showing Group Policy errors in the event log In each case it is Event ID 1085 ' Windows failed to apply the Group Policy Local Users and Groups settings'. If I run a GP Results on an affected server then I can see that under Component Status the Group Policy Local Users and Groups 'Failed' and 'The data is invalid'. I then check the Settings and all of the winning GPO's for an affected server are shown as GUID's rather than names. The problem is only affecting a few servers. The GPO's that show as GUID's on some servers show as names on others.
For one of the servers I have put in it's own OU and blocked inheritance so it has no GPO's applied but the RSoP tool still shows the same errors even though there are no GPO's listed.
Can anyone point me in the right direction to clear this up please?

Try and download from microsoft the adm/admx template pack and import them again. On some of those servers you might have corrupted gpo templates.
Hope it helps.
