  2. This is not an error. Someone has enabled DS access auditing for failures,
    and the SACL on this object also has an entry which audits failed
    "write-self" or "extended write" accesses. Go edit the SACL on this object
    (that's in ADU&C or AdsiEdit, enable Advanced Features, then go to

    Or you can disable DS access auditing altogether, if you want to, that's
    somewhere in group policy, sorry, don't remember exactly where.
