A W2K Server (before AD installed) was a member of an NT40 domain.  I then installed Active Directory as a new primary domain controller for a new domain.  Everything works except for the Group Policy Object. If an attempt is made to access it, the error message "Unable to reach remote computer" occurs.  I can't figure out how to fix it!  When the machine boots, the following 3 error messages appear in the event log (listed in the order they occur)

1)Source=SceCli, Type=Error, Event_ID=1001, Desc="Security policy cannot be propagated. Cannot access the template. Error code = 3.     \\NAMDOM.COM\sysvol\NAMDOM.COM\Policies\{31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9}\Machine\Microsoft\Windows NT\SecEdit\GptTmpl.inf. "

2) Source=Userenv, Type=Error, Event_ID=1000, User=NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM, Desc=The Group Policy client-side extension Security was passed flags (1) and returned a failure status code of (3).

3) Source=SclgNtfy, Type=Error, Event_ID=1002, Desc=Default group policy object cannot be created. Error 80070033 to open GPO Domain EFS Recovery Policy in domain LDAP://DC=NAMDOM,DC=com.

Obviously you promoted this server, how did you accomplish this, eg: what did you use to accomplish this?

The the following articles in the MSKB:

Q279742, Q258960; Q258296; Q261197; Q276516; Q277682; Q290647 and Q285923

For the record, Q258296 in the MSKB contained the answer to the problem in my case.  The ethernet adapter that connected the server to our local area network, was listed below the ethernet adapter that connected the server to the DSL modem (internet connection).  Moving the LAN adapter above the DSL adapter corrected the problem.  MS acknowledges this as a problem in their product.
